To love God requires that we know Him, and that knowledge begins with His Word. Neighborhood Church holds to the position that to love God is to worship and praise Him, be invested in His Word, and celebrate His grace.
A distinguishing mark of being a follower of Jesus Christ is a sincere love for brothers and sisters in the body of Christ: His church (John 13:34-35). When we love one another through the power of the Holy Spirit, we give evidence that we are disciples of Jesus Christ.
Our love for God is manifested by loving people and following His command to love our neighbors (Mark 12:31). God desires to draw the lost to salvation and our role in His plan is for us to lovingly share with our unbelieving relatives, friends, and neighbors the good news of the gospel.
