What Is The Church? | Matthew 16:18

In this series, one of my goals is to change our understanding of what church is. To take us from the prevalent consumer mindset to a Biblical mindset of the church so that we will fully understand the call to commit ourselves to a local church and that even though it is imperfect, it is still seeking what the Bible prescribes. In today’s message, my main point is this. If anyone is going to be committed to the local church, we must define what we are committing to. What I would like to do today is first look at the church defined where we will define the local church and the universal church, then we will look at some Biblical descriptions of the church.
