Many people disagree or misunderstand what a church is and what a church should look like. This misunderstanding is amplified when trying to distinguish between the universal church and a local church. The purpose of this class, therefore, is to bring clarity to our understanding of the church by studying and discussing specific passages of Scripture.
The class focuses on the following characteristics of the church:
Week 1: The People of God
Week 2: The Body of Christ
Week 3: The Temple of the Spirit
Week 4: The Living Church
Week 5: The Growing Church
Week 6: The Distinct Church
Week 7: The God-Glorifying Church
As each lesson progresses, we will learn what our responsibilities are to God, to each other, and to the world.
This class is based upon the 9Marks Healthy Church Study Guides.
