What is our role as Christians and the purpose of the Chuch?
Foundational Concepts on the Purpose of the Church:
1. God has a play for the life of each human being (1 Timonthy 2:3-4)
2. The primary “calling” or mission for Christians is in the world and not on the church property. (Mark 16:15)
3. Many Christians are unskilled in relating their faith to daily life. (Hebrews 5:12-14)
4. The primary task of the church is to develop mature disciples ford minitry in the world. (Ephesians 4:11-12)
8. Spiritual leaders much begin communicating agin.
One through five seem to relate to an individual level and six through eight are perhaps more institutional.
