Millions of people describe themselves as followers of Jesus but do not have any affiliation or participation with a local congregation of the Lord's church. On the other extreme, others believe that having their name on a church roll or periodically frequenting worship assemblies, identifies them with Christ and thus, numbers them among the saved. Both views are a misunderstanding of the church and the Christian's relationship with the body. In this broadcast of 'Let the Bible Speak', we see what it means to be added to the church by Christ and why the Christian's participation in its collective work and mission is necessary to spiritual life.
Is Your Church Changing?
The winds of change are sweeping across the religious community almost as fast as they are reshaping the world at large. Long-standing beliefs and scriptural traditions are being abandoned in a pragmatic effort to make the church more adaptable and palatable to the secular world and particularly, the millennial generation. Many churches of Christ are adopting practices and approaches to scripture that were long avoided by congregations associated with restoration of primitive Christianity. This change has left many behind and confused. In this broadcast of Let the Bible Speak we look at why churches change, when change is good and when it is not.
