What Is the Church?
Bell, Bill; Groce, Mandy
The church is not a building. It is a people that God has called together and made alive by faith. Although the activities of the church are important this book begins with who God's people are—recognizing that the church's activity results from its identity. When we call children to be a part of the church, we are calling them to be a part of a gospel people. And, as a gospel people, the church is a believing family, a community of missionaries, servants, learners and worshipers. This book is a call to God's people to live as the people that God has made them to be.
