Verse: Ephesians 4:4-6
These verses affirm that all followers of Christ are one. In Christ, the racial, class, and gender barriers that divide and separate people are overcome.
We are all part of one body.
We all receive the same Spirit.
We share the same hope, the same faith, and the same baptism.
According to Ephesians 4:11-13, our goal is to build up the body of Christ until we all reach unity, become mature, and attain “the full measure of the fullness of Christ.”
