Why does the Church exist? Why are we (still) here? John (the Baptizer) led two his students to Jesus. One of those students was Andrew; Andrew then went and connected his brother, Peter, to Jesus. Philip found his friend, Nathanael, and connected him to Jesus too. Following those who have gone before us, we believe there is no greater purpose or calling in life, that we exist as His Church, to work together to connect people to Jesus, too.
