What is the church? The church is not a building on a corner or merely a congregation of God’s redeemed. The church is actually the desire of God’s heart, even His good pleasure (Eph 1:9). Everything that God has done and will do is for the church: God created the universe for the church (Eph. 3:9-10); Christ loved the church and died on the cross for the church (Eph 5:25); and today, Christ is building His church (Matt. 16:18).
Have you seen the church? Is the church a governing principle in your Christian life and service? Is the church the goal of your preaching and teaching (Eph. 4:11-12)? Join us to see a clear vision of the church, the purpose of the church, and the way to build the church in a practical way so that we can all say, like the apostle Paul, “this mystery is great, but I speak with regard to Christ and the church!”
