To me, community includes a variety of people who generally do life together. They live near one another, work together, and gather together. Community can be as small as the people in your personal circle or as vast as anyone you encounter. To take it even further, what makes a community strong and genuine is when we build up and support each other no matter individual beliefs, backgrounds, faiths, or family dynamics. Surrounding yourself with only like-minded people can put you in an echo chamber that limits your ability to grow and learn as a person. A genuine community does not exile those with different values or ways of thinking or living, but rather embraces how they work together for the betterment of everyone.
