The Purpose and Function of the Church

June 10, 2012

Scripture: 1 Timothy 3:14–3:15

The Bible calls the church "the pillar and foundation of the truth" (1 Timothy 3:15).  Our purpose as Christians is larger than the individual accomplishments of our Christian lives.  Instead, we need to look at the way we interact with other believers in our local church.  God's word has provided us with specific instructions on how we should act in a community of believers, and today's message from 1 Timothy 3:15 will help to explain how we can build a better church community and reach out to the community at large for God's glory.
