We all have questions about what it means to live a Christian life. We all need help. Over the next six weeks, we are going to be introduced to several concepts that go into living “The Christian Life.” The follower of Christ is encouraged to “live a life worthy of the calling you have received” (Ephesians 4:1). We will discuss several topics like assurance, baptism, prayer, devotions, Bible study, God, church, spiritual disciplines, outreach, and discipleship. My prayer is that over the next six weeks, you will grow in your faith in God and love for Him and other people.
Today, we look at God's family, the church. What the church isn't, what it is, some biblical images for the church and basic functions of the church.
Remember, these are overviews, the basics, and not intended to be an exhaustive answer to the question.
