House Church: Part II
Many Christian couples are homesick for true biblical community. A community that's more than a wave and hello each Sunday—they're looking for commitment and encouragement and even accountability. For Dale and Veronica, the only place they've been able to form these theologically rich and relationally deep bonds with other Christians is within the close-knit culture of a Bible-based house church.
