The Church is not an organization which we join; it is a family. Some people like to refer to the Church as a faith community, and while that is true, it does not express the central meaning of family. When we come to faith in Christ through the work of the Holy Spirit in baptism, we become members of the family of God in Christ. In the language of St. Paul, we are adopted into God’s family in Christ, we become sons and daughters of God, brothers and sisters in Christ.
