Churches should be awesome. They should inspire the very best spiritual response from the Christian, and they must aspire to be convincing to the unbeliever as well. A church can be more than simply a Sunday service and is meant to be an important everyday entity. The Lord himself conceived the church and through Him, the church was actually born. It is called a “glorious church” (Ephesians 5:27). A church functioning with the Lord is a potent force. A church without him is dead, ineffectual and potentially a force for evil. The identity and practice of a local New Testament church are, Therefore, of supreme importance. A clear understanding of the church makes it easier to be courageous for the Lord in ministry. I want to share this courage with you.
