Scriptures have a lot to say about the church, and yet based upon the fickleness we find in church-goers today, it seems a re-examination of those passages is in order. What is the church? What is her mission? How do we accomplish the mission? These are important questions. If the church is God’s primary means for expanding His kingdom work, then we need to understand who we are as a community of faith – who we are as the church.
