Why The Church?
One of the most important aspects of the Christian life is the local church. We discover that the first group of believers arising from Peter’s message at Pentecost was committed to the ministry of their church. In Acts 2:42 Luke wrote that these believers were continually devoting themselves to the apostles’ teaching, fellowship, the breaking of bread (representing corporate worship) and prayer. They were not doing these four aspects of ministry individually but with other believers on a consistent basis.
That is why it is vital that every Christian have a solid understanding of the various ministries of their local church and how they can show their commitment to Christ by consistent involvement in these ministries.
That is what this Bible study is all about!
