What is the Church? Part 2

What is the Church? Part 2



When we try to determine just what the “church” is, we really aren’t free to decide on the answer for ourselves. Jesus has already given us the starting point, and the Apostles wrote down the basics in the New Testament. Very simply put …

The Church is …
A group of people who are following Christ
Organized under the lordship of Christ
Dedicated to fulfilling the mission of Christ

Today we look more carefully at what it means for the church to be “organized under the lordship of Christ.” We’ll look at what the Bible has to say about how the risen and ascended Christ continues to lead, feed, and care for His church through godly men called and affirmed to be leaders. And we’ll also consider the fact that the whole purpose of Christ’s ministry to the church is for the accomplishing of His mission through the church.
