Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao embarks on a new study on The Church, and explains these are some of the questions we need to think about as we define it from a biblical standpoint.
For we may find that the very way we have been thinking about the church… is not biblical at all.
Description: Because this is God’s church, He has given us marching orders on how it should be structured and run. In modern times, we have allowed the idea of pragmatism to enter the church and have started adopting business practices and other unbiblical methods. Paul tells us not only the leadership structure of a church but also the purpose of the leaders and it looks very different from what we usually see today.
Description: The problem of division and disunity in the body of Christ is nothing new. It is a problem which Paul addresses in his letter to the church in Ephesus and which we will examine in this message. Paul clearly lays out the theological basis for the unity of the church by describing the work of the triune God in the lives of His people. Difficulty arises because those whom God has called to be His are made up of people from so many backgrounds that division seems likely. For this reason, Paul instructs his readers to better understand the unity they have in Christ and how that unity is to be lived out in our daily experience.
