a Christian community committed to
growing in faith, serving in love, living in Christ,
and extending God's gracious welcome to all.
The Apostle Paul’s letter to the church at Ephesus is less anchored in the actual circumstances of a particular faith community than some of Paul’s other letters are. Instead, Ephesians reads almost like a sermon, with Paul hitting head-on some of the most important theological issues of the early Christian church. Despite its relative brevity compared to other New Testament texts, Ephesians is dense with insight, inspiration, encouragement, and hope for a church seeking to discern the shape of faithful living in a messy world.
