OAKRIDGE BIBLE CHAPEL

All in the Family: A Conversation With Andrew Longmire

As a local church grows in size (or is forced apart because of a virus!) it can become increasingly difficult to actually know everyone in the community and, thus, to be blessed by everyone in the community. This is unfortunate because there are no unnecessary members (1 Corinthians 12:7), none who are ungifted (Romans 12:6), and not one who isn’t called to the “work of service, to the building up of the body of Christ” unto spiritual maturity (Ephesians 4:11–13). Said another way, we need one another as Spirit-indwelled conduits of God’s grace to propel us toward holiness and, when unable to be around one another and to know one another, this process is hindered.

With that in mind, we’re going to try and “shrink the church” a bit today and, hopefully, provide an opportunity for one particular Oakridge family member to “build up the body of Christ” from afar. On this episode, Josiah chats with Andrew Longmire about his walk with Christ, the greatest struggles in his Christian life, lessons he’s learned along the way, and much more.
