Community Christian Church is a multiethnic non-denominational church in East Harlem where you will meet people just like you. We are real people who deal with all the same issues you face. We aren’t perfect and don’t pretend to be. However, we have found help by drawing closer to Jesus and developing a closer relationships with one another.
Peter is writing to followers of Christ who are experiencing tough times. He explains to them that even in the middle of trials, they can have inexpressible joy. This is because they have a new spiritual life that gives a living hope, a wonderful inheritance, and guaranteed protection. They have salvation now and forever so they should rejoice.
As followers of Jesus we often feel out of place in the world, like foreigners. This is because we are citizens of another kingdom and inspite of feeling out of place we are deeply loved and chosen by.
