The human body performs best when all the various parts work together harmoniously. Paul taught that this was also true of the Church, which is most effective when its members exercise their spiritual gifts under the headship of Christ. Alistair Begg explains why this unity is best expressed through membership in a local church as we each discover and fulfill our unique, God-given roles.
12For just as the body is one and has many members, and all the members of the body, though many, are one body, so it is with Christ. 13For in one Spirit we were all baptized into one body—Jews or Greeks, slaves4 or free—and all were made to drink of one Spirit.
