Those Who Were Far Off

What Is a Church?
Ephesians 2:11-13
Matthew Raley (10-2-11)

The word church has become a source of confusion for many in our day.  Is it a building, or is it a family?  What sort of model should it follow?  Should it be like a mall with a little of something for everyone; or entertaining, like a rock concert or a TV show?  Perhaps it should be like a coffee shop, a place to meet, engage in dialogue, and form community.

It is essential that we figure out what a church is, because here at Grace Brethren Church we are in the process of restarting one.  It is a process that involves bonding people with many points of view into one community. In order to figure this out we must challenge our assumptions about church and yield our ideas to what the Scriptures teach.
