“A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” John 13:34 & 35 NIV®.
Jesus is our example of how to love one another. In the Bible we have example after example of how he did this: he healed people, he placed value on people that others rejected and commands us to do the same. Showing love is not a charitable choice, it is a commandment to just and right living. It is every Christian’s calling. Click here to read more about biblical justice.
One Another Care follows the example of Jesus and fulfils the mandate for ministry for the whole body of Christ – the church. A church that demonstrates ‘One Another Care’ will become a healthy, loving and restorative community that is welcoming to others. Such care may be formally expressed in structured Health and Pastoral Care ministries. Click here to read more.

We can help you and your church build biblical understanding of caring for one another and the power of hope, connection and community.
