The Church

 Here’s some more of my project for my Christian theology class.

I believe in one holy universal church, a diverse community comprised of all those who have truly trusted in Jesus Christ as Lord (Acts 11:1-18; Rom. 2:28-29; 4:9-12; 10:9-13; 1 Cor. 12:13; Gal. 3:26-29; Eph. 2:11-18; 3:6; 4:4-6). The church exists to glorify God in all things, to train believers to follow Christ, to share in Christian fellowship, and spread the gospel of the Lord Jesus throughout the world (Matt. 28:18-20; Mark 12:28-31; Rom. 12:1-2; Eph. 4:11-13; 1 John 4:7-21). According to Scripture, the church is the family of God, the bride of Christ and the temple of the Holy Spirit (1 Cor. 3:16-17; Gal. 6:10; Eph. 2:21-22; 3:15; 4:4-6; 5:22-33; Heb. 2:11; Rev. 19:7-8).

    Daniel,

    Great thoughts…you forgot that the Church is also the Body of Christ. He is the head and we are the body. The Church extends downward from heaven on to earth where He is the head and His mystical body connects heaven to earth.

    The Church is what saves as being one with the Church, we have entered His Body and gain access to heaven through His Body.

    We cannot be saved outside of it.
