What is the Church?

Preacher: Ben Phillips

Category: Church

What is the Church? That is a big question, and in order to have a better sense of where a church is headed, and what ministries it should do, we need to have an answer. What images does the Bible use to describe and define the Church? In this sermon we will explore how the Scriptures describe the Church as the people of God, the Body of Christ, the Bride of Christ, and the temple of the Holy Spirit, to name just a few. We will also explore how a right understanding of the church enables us to be stronger disciples of Jesus, and to better reach out to our community around us, especially those who may have been hurt by a church at one time or another.
