Sermon: I Believe in the Church
Theme: God has called us to be part of the community of believers in order that we may make God’s presence and love known to the world.
Purpose: We will affirm that together we are representatives of God’s love and covenant.
Scriptures: Hebrews 10:19-25 Let us provoke one another to Good Works and to not neglect the fellowship.
Matthew 16:13-26 Jesus gives the “Keys to the kingdom” to the church, any who want to follow need to take up their cross.
Why would I believe in a building? Is the church a building? Do really need it? Why do so few people attend Church? What’s going to happen to people who don’t? What actually is the Church? How do we develop our ability to be part of God’s presence in the world? What do we need to do in order to accurately reflect God’s intention for the Church on earth? How can we create a space where people experience God’s presence with truth and healing grace?
