A Church, A Communion

We have had two name changes recently, one of our church to the word church instead of fellowship. We did this mainly to emphasize our appreciation for the visible church and her outward means of grace, the Word, Sacraments and prayer. The other change came at our denomination just a couple days ago, from the Confederation of Reformed Evangelical Churches to the Communion REC. This was to avoid people assuming our churches all support the Southern Confederacy, which has been a significant obstacle to ministering the Gospel with some places and people. And the word communion better emphasizes our spiritual unity together in Christ. We do believe in the communion of saints, we say in the creed, and we are called to share together in the common life and mission of the church.
