What is the church of Christ?
The churches of Christ Greet You (Romans 16:16)
The church is the Kingdom of God. It is made up of people who have responded to Christ's call to come out of sin and live under the rule of God.
The church is the Body of Christ. Christ is still serving and saving people today through His body, the church.
The church is the Temple of the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit speaks to us through God's Word, leads us to faith, repentance and baptism. After we are born again, the Spirit lives in us. He gives us spiritual strength to resist temptation, and He slowly changes us into the likeness of Christ.
The church is a Worshiping Community. We meet together every week to worship God in spirit and in truth.
The church is the Family of God. God is our Father, Christ is our older brother, and we are brothers and sisters who love and encourage each other.
The church is a Royal Priesthood. Every Christian, male and female, is a holy priest of the King and is responsible for offering spiritual sacrifices and bringing people to God by telling them the Good News about Christ.
The church is the Bride of Christ. Christ loved the church and gave Himself for her. He made her pure and holy in the waters of baptism, and He will take her to Himself in perfect love for all eternity.
