A team from our church had the privilege of going to Kodiak Baptist Mission to help and serve in any area that might need support. We were mesmerized by the beauty of Kodiak immediately upon landing. The emerald green mountains capped with brilliant white snow stood proud as if protecting this quaint little island. The road traveled took us by the harbor with fishing vessels resting from the waves of the ocean. An inviting downtown nestled itself together in a welcoming manner as we passed by.
Upon arriving at Kodiak Baptist Mission we felt welcomed and loved. A sense of community filled the air.
We were welcomed into their community as if we were family.
Working together as one with those we just met made us feel like one group, not a separate group from Indiana. We soon realized that Kodiak Baptist Mission knew community. But, it just wasn’t their community they were showing - it was the community of One. The community of Jesus.
Jesus was felt on the campus of Kodiak Baptist Mission in all we did.
Jesus tells us in Ephesians 4:2-6 – “ Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love. 3, Make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace. 4, There is one body and one Spirit, just as you were called to one hope when you were called; 5, one Lord, one faith, one baptism; 6, one God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all.”
We left Kodiak Baptist Mission with a greater sense of community, one that offers love and kindness. A community that welcomes you as family.
But, more importantly, we gained a new love for the True community that only Jesus offers. A community of true love and kindness offered to all. The best community.
Join His community!
