This is a basic article on what the church of Christ is all about.
Based on Psalm 48, this article is about God building his church today. God builds each church with a specific group of people, in a certain place, at the time he ordains. How can we worship Him in the context in which He has placed us?
Defining the church both from the Old Testament and New Testament, this article shows that the church started in the Old Testament, and in the New Testament we see the continuation of the church. The author discusses how the church is the gathered people of God who worship God and listen to His Word. Believers, therefore, find their identity in being part of this group of people.
This article looking at Ephesians 2:11-22 shows how in Christ God has made the church to be a uniting place. In Christ, the church has become the Israel of God, a people of God not limited by race, colour nor place. Racism can truly be abolished by the gospel, ushering in the new nation where unity and diversity can be celebrated.
