What Is the Church?Who or what is the Church? Some might think there are more pressing issues to address in today’s world, but there’s no question that the word ‘church’ conjures up all kinds of images.

In all of these areas, we are reminded that Christ Himself is the head of the Church, and it is only in submission to His authority that the Church functions as it ought and flourishes as He intends. Whatever our starting point, this series of studies will bring us to realize just how vitally relevant and crucial the Church is for the 21st century.
