What Must a Church Do?

Jesus expects a local church to do their part in carrying out the Great Commission. Our activities, when we gather together, should originate from His call on our lives. 

What Makes a Church?

Since a local church is a body instead of a building, certain necessary distinctives must be present. To have a biblical church, we cannot ignore biblical requirements. 

Who Are the People of God?

We will never understand what the Church should do until we know what the Church actually is. The Church is the people of God united for the purposes of God.  

Can You Lose Your Salvation?

The chance of losing salvation depends on whose work it is ultimately. While we could undeniably fumble, God is entirely faithful. 

How Are We Saved?

Salvation is a major tenet of Christianity while many aspects of it are debated within the Church. Without a biblical description of our salvation, we are in danger of sharing a faith of which we do not understand. 

How Is the Church Divided Over the Holy Spirit?

While Scripture is clear on the work of the Holy Spirit, Christians have debated specific roles based on assumptions or experiences. We must be careful not to alter His role to fit our expectations.
