Day 2: Accountability
According to the Scriptures, members of South Ridge Church have a responsibility to protect one another from areas of ongoing sin. Though we are ultimately accountable to God (Romans 14:12, 1 John 1:8-10), we are also accountable to one another (James 5:16, 19-20; Galatians 6:1, Hebrews 10:24-25). Therefore, accountability is an understandable requirement to account for one’s conduct to both God and the local church. Accountability generally takes place in the Community Groups or in even smaller groups of 2-3 people of the same sex. It is viewed as one way that we can practice loving God and loving one another.
