"What marks an authentically Christian church—on every level, no exceptions—is humility."

Every social group has unwritten rules that inform what they are like when they are together.  So what do followers of Jesus look like when they get together?  Peter explains that the church community is marked by humility, especially in its leaders.  From his own life experience and first-hand knowledge of Jesus', Peter explains what humility really is, and how we can only find it in the gospel of Jesus Christ.  With that foundation, we learn what that humility looks like in the lives of a church congregation.
