The Church Unparalleled
August 13, 2017 Speaker: Eric Rivera Series: The Church: Flawed & Forgiven. Prized & Unparalleled.
Passage: Matthew 16:18, Hebrews 10:24–10:25
The Church is made up of flawed people. It's central to our identity--broken people who have found forgiveness and life (not perfection) through Jesus' death and resurrection. What often, however, gets overlooked is the fact that the church is greatly prized (purchased by the precious blood of Jesus) and is unparalleled (not even the gates of hell could stand against it). The Church is God's idea, uniquely poised to Glorify him, Magnify his name through his people on mission, and Sanctify believers helping them persevere through accountability, instruction, and discipline.
