What is the church? Who is the church? How does the church function? And, how can I know the value of the church. There are two themes in the New Testament that opens the scripture to us and that is the purpose of this message. We know that Jesus Christ is the foundation and there is no other foundation you can build on, but when He said, “I am going to build my church,” what did Jesus mean? There are two words that you will find as the central theme of the New Testament and those are the “church” and the “kingdom.” The “instrument” and the “purpose”. This message will explain what those two words really mean.
