Justification & Familification

"It is time to inform our people that conversion to Christ involves both our justification and our familification, that we gain a new Father and a new set of brothers and sisters when we respond to the gospel. It is time to communicate the biblical reality that personal salvation is a community-creating event, and to trust God to change our lives and the lives o four churches accordingly."

-J. Hellerman, When the Church was a Family, 143.
