I Will Build My Church

Matthew 16:18  (ID: 3227)

Does the Church still matter, or is it an institution that is doomed to become obsolete? Alistair Begg explains that when the Lord Jesus said, "I will build my Church," His words were grounded in the eternal and unchanging purposes of God, and they stand firm. All of the Bible points forward to the work of Christ, who is gathering together a people of His own through the preaching of the Gospel. Christ has conquered, and in His triumph we are assured that His Church will certainly be victorious.


18And I tell you, you are Peter, and on this rock2 I will build my church, and the gates of hell3 shall not prevail against it.
