The Church - Introduction (Part 1)
Transcript of The Church - Introduction (Part 1)
The bible does not recognize any one visible Church on earth as The Church.
The Church which is His body consists of regenerated souls, each one redeemed by the blood of Christ.
The Church has no visible head on earth but an unseen Head (Christ) in heaven.
Eph 5:25; Acts 15:14
Definition of the Church
Beginning with Pentecost and ending probably with rapture.
"Church" comes from the greek word "Ecclesia" meaning "to call out from".
Church can refer to a local group of believers (Philemon 2; Col 4:15)
The word Church can also mean the Church universal
Visible Church: earthly denominations, sects, good and bad.
Invisible Church: Rev 21:27
