The bible lays out the ideas behind starting what has become the global Church. There are things that are great about what the Church has become, and things that we maybe need to remember about the original purpose behind the institution of the Church. We discuss some of these things today, and steps we can take to make the church a more vibrant community of people following Christ. Do you have questions for us?
