How important is it for believers to be involved in a local church? Teaching from Ephesians 4, Alistair Begg shows that it is the only way to grow to Christian maturity. We develop a stable understanding of doctrine and grow in Christlikeness as we hear God speak through faithful preaching. The unique, supernatural nature of our fellowship shines forth when everyone joins in for effective Gospel ministry.
14so that we may no longer be children, tossed to and fro by the waves and carried about by every wind of doctrine, by human cunning, by craftiness in deceitful schemes. 15Rather, speaking the truth in love, we are to grow up in every way into him who is the head, into Christ, 16from whom the whole body, joined and held together by every joint with which it is equipped, when each part is working properly, makes the body grow so that it builds itself up in love.
