In 1 Corinthians 12, Paul compares the members of a church to different parts of the body. In both cases, each member has an important function to fill. In this sermon we’re challenged to identify our function, our commitment, and the fulfillment of our God-ordained role in the local church. Listen to Truth For Life with Alistair Begg. More
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. Indeed, it is a word which is very often misunderstood. By examining passages from several books of the New Testament, Alistair Begg provides clarity on topic of the Church by explaining the nature, origin, and leadership of the Church, the relationship of individuals to the Body of Christ and to local congregations, and the marks of a healthy church fellowship. 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.
