This past week we considered an important question: what is the church? As we seek to faithfully be and build a biblically healthy church, we need to understand what it is that we are planting. And there are many implications for us as we begin to understand how scripture defines and describes the church.

If you missed this opening sermon for our January series on the church, you can listen online here.


Having seen what the church is, we need to understand what the church is to do. What is the mission of the church? What is the church's role in the plan of God? What is our central priority and responsibility? I would invite you to pray with me for clarity in understanding our mission as a church, and that God would energize us by His Spirit to faithfully pursue our mission for the glory of His name.
