According to Michel Hendricks & Jim Wilder in their book, The other Half of Church, transformation happens in a community where there are foundational elements built into the community. When a community is built on high-joy and high-love, then we can experience the transformation of people's character by the power of the Holy Spirit. The third element is a Group Identity, where people in the group remind each other who we are and what we do as a people of Christ. Pastor Joon Hwang is using these principles to encourage community of Christ such as church, small groups, and even a family to create an atmosphere or culture that fosters the character transformation into Christ-likeness.
