What makes a website a community? And why bother having one? That's the million dollar question. Since its early days, the internet has been a home where communities could be created -- destinations for people who share like interests, or feel stongly about certain subjects. Bulletin boards, chat rooms, listervs have been their domain. Now those same venues are being incorporated into websites, and supplemented with news, links, and additional information. E-commerce sites are recognizing the value of community (a.k.a. "repeat customers") and try to re-create them on their own sites. Whether or not you are selling something, users love community, they want to feel as if real people are behind those screens. It's a reassuring feeling, and creates a long lasting affinity with your website.
When we use the term community it reflects the fact that we believe the bible teaches that followers of Christ become a part of a new family. We believe therefore that simply going to a church building once a week isn't adequate to experience a biblical view of community. We believe that all followers of Jesus need to become a part of communities in which they are known, loved and held accountable. We are strong advocates of Christians experimenting with residential forms of community, particularly the co-housing model.
