If Jesus taught anything about connectedness, it was modeled through the relationship He had with the Father. Throughout the Gospels Jesus reveals the tight knit sense of connection and community which He had with the Father, to be the kind of community that is fostered and nurtured through His own relationship with the disciples who would become the apostles of the Early Church. From the very beginning the revelation of the Kingdom of God He came to preach was that of a relational Kingdom, a “Kingdom of Hearts” in which God is winning the hearts of those who make up the Bridegroom’s Bride.

Koinonia is the assembly of the called out ones, the community of those who belong to Christ. It is a relational redemptive missional community that differs completely from “religion” for it not an association of religious people performing religious exercises
