"You & Me: We Are the Church" (Romans 12:1-18, Matthew 16:13-20)

Rev. Dr. Marjorie E. NunesRev. Dr. Marjorie E. Nunes, August 27, 2017
Part of the Sunday series, preached at a Sunday service

The word church in the Bible comes from the Greek word ecclesia, which means a “called out” company or assembly. Wherever it is used in the Bible it refers to people. It can be a mob (Acts 19:30-41), the children of Israel (Acts 7:38), and the body of Christ (Ephesians 1:22; Ephesians 5:25, 32). We see the word church used three different ways:
First, as the body of Christ, the church is often defined as a local assembly or group of believers (1 Corinthians 1:2; 2 Corinthians 1:1; Galatians 1:1-2). Second, it is defined as the body of individual living believers (1 Corinthians 15:9; Galatians 1:13). Finally, it is defined as the universal group of all people who have trusted Christ through the ages.
