The Church  

Church as a word means those called as a particular people to perform a particular task. The Christian Church is the assembly of God's chosen people called to keep his word and to do his will and his work in the world and in the heavenly kingdom.In the Scriptures the Church is called the Body of Christ (Rom12; 1 Cor10, 12; Col1) and the Bride of Christ (Eph5; Rev21). It is likened as well to God's living Temple (Eph2; 1 Pet2) and is called "the pillar and bulwark of Truth" (1 Tim 3:15). More . . .
