The Christian church is a collection of believers. The church began 50 days after Jesus’s resurrection. Worship in the first-century church looked a lot like it does today. We explain 3 things the local church does.

 

00:00 – INTRODUCTIONS

 

0:39 – THE CHRISTIAN CHURCH IS A COLLECTION OF BELIEVERS 

 

1:33 – THE CHURCH IS DIVIDED INTO UNIVERSAL & LOCAL CHURCH

 

1:56 – THE ONE UNIVERSAL CHURCH CONSISTS OF ONLY TRUE BELIEVERS: PAST, PRESENT, AND FUTURE.

 

2:56 – THE “LOCAL CHURCHES” THROUGHOUT THE WORLD HAVE BOTH BELIEVERS AND NON-CHRISTIANS. 

 

3:51 – THE CHURCH ORIGINATED 50 DAYS AFTER JESUS’S RESURRECTION (PENTECOST) WHEN THE HOLY SPIRIT CAME TO JESUS’S DISCIPLES (ACTS 2)!

 

5:04 – THE EARLY CHURCH 

 

6:22 – THE LOCAL CHURCH TODAY HAS THREE PURPOSES

  • Worshipping God 
  • Discipling fellow Christians 
  • Evangelizing & serving the world around us

 

7:24 – WORSHIP MEANS GIVING GOD THE SUPREME WORTH THAT HE ALONE DESERVES EITHER INDIVIDUALLY OR CORPORATELY 

 

8:04 – PRAYER

 

8:57 – TEACHING/ PREACHING 

 

9:44 – DISCIPLESHIP 

 

10:31 – THE PROTESTANT CHURCH PRACTICES TWO ORDINANCES (SACRAMENTS): BAPTISM AND THE LORD’S SUPPER 

 

11:57 – EVANGELISM 

 

12:38 – FELLOWSHIP 

 

13:33 – SERVING 

 

14:31 – THE BIBLE CALLS THE CHURCH THE “BODY OF CHRIST.” 

 

15:09 – THE “BODY OF CHRIST” HAS MANY DIFFERENT PARTS. THESE ARE THE SPIRITUAL GIFTS THE HOLY SPIRIT GIVES EVERY CHRISTIAN 

 

16:23 – EVERY CHRISTIAN PLAYS A PART IN THE BODY OF CHRIST. YOU NEED TO ACTIVELY TEAM WITH OTHER CHRISTIANS IN THE CHURCH AS A MEMBER. 

 

17:17 – WHAT’S YOUR NEXT STEP?

  • READ ACTS 2 ABOUT THE EARLY CHURCH OR READ 1 CORINTHIANS 12 THAT TALKS ABOUT SPIRITUAL GIFTS. 
  • BECOME A REGULAR MEMBER OF A CHURCH

 

19:36 THANK YOU AND CLOSE
