From Belonging to Becoming: The Power of Loving People Like Jesus Did
by Mike Clarensau

What if we put belonging first like Jesus did?

Warm handshakes, artsy visitor cards, info desks—even good coffee—won’t make visitors feel welcome in a church that expects people to believe the right things and change their behavior before they’re allowed to belong.

Many churches, even really good ones, have mastered the believe-and-become-before-you-belong paradigm of accepting people into their fellowship. We say: choose to believe what we believe, become like us in your behavior, and then you can belong here.

One day, Mike Clarensau asked himself the question: “What if we put belonging first, like Jesus did?” Christ welcomed people to follow Him without proclamations of faith or fruits of repentance. When Mike acted on that thought, his view of people changed, and his church set about loving people unconditionally. The congregation put belonging ahead of believing and becoming. When it did, people’s lives and the life of the church were powerfully transformed—and more than a few got saved.

In From Belonging to Becoming: The Power of Loving People Like Jesus Did, Mike shares what happened in his church and how it can happen in yours.
