community2Paramount Church is knit together in community. By God’s perfect design, every Christian needs community. From the book of Romans to 3 John, we find 64 statements concerning what Christians are to do for one another. God entrusted to the Church the all-sufficient counsel of His word so that we may love, encourage, restore, admonish, pray for, and sanctify one another in truth (John 17:17, Galatians 6:1-2). In fact, Jesus said the world would know His disciples by the fruit of their love for each other (John 13:34). This is the essence of a Gospel community. As Paramount Church, we are committed to grow as a community knit together by love through the mutual ministry of the word (Acts 6:4, Colossians 3:15-16). Through preaching, small groups, and one-on-one discipleship, we want every member to grow in wise and godly counsel, living the Christian life together.

We are a community of broken people entirely dependent upon God to save us from our sin and suffering. It is our joy to walk together in weakness and dependence upon Christ (2 Corinthians 12:9). His divine power has granted to us everything pertaining to life and godliness and it is our desire to display the sufficiency of the Scriptures in life (2 Peter 1:3). We understand the trials, temptations, and trouble of this broken world. Relying on the Bible as our central resource for lasting change and restoration, we have gone to great lengths to provide practical and godly counseling to the members of our church and our neighbors in Columbus. In these ways, and many more, we are also fulfilling a Great Commission.
