The Church Defined as a Unified Body

  • The church is the body of Christ. It is a unified body with many members.

The Church Defined as an Essentially Diverse Body

  • Within the Body of Christ, there is harmonious unity within the diversity of its parts.
  • Within the Body of Christ, each member is essential to the other.


 The Church Defined as a Caring Body

  • We come together to share our lives with one another and give our lives up in sacrificial love for one another.



  • How we care for another
  • How we serve together
  • How the elders are equipping the saints for the work of the ministry (Eph. 4:11-16)
