Body

Jesus Christ loves the church so much that he calls himself the Head of the church, and calls the church his Body. To be a part of a local church is to belong to Jesus Christ. Therefore, it is an amazing privilege to belong to the local church, and to participate in all the benefits and duties that come with that. In his love for the church, Christ has also given wonderful gifts of pastors to the church, who are to exercise spiritual care and authority for the equipping of the saints and furtherance of the ministry. Within the Body, members are to use their various gifts and resources and abilities to promote the unity of the church, as a display of God’s glory. In this way, with the Body working together in all of its various ways, Jesus Christ will be put on display to the watching world.
