The Purpose of the Church by Dr. Jerry Nelson
Church—Why bother? Most of us long to be different and to have our lives changed. According to God’s word, the change we long for and the relationships we covet are found in the church because that is the way God made us. Christianity is not only a private affair between God and the individual. We are converted, save and born again into a community—a community of faith, the body of Christ, the Church. Come, join the community of God—The Church!
