‘I Believe in the Church’

The Church is Not . . . a building . . . a denomination

The Church Is one: Built on the Foundation of Christ
The Church is holy: Set aside for God; God’s possession
The Church is catholic (universal): Sent to all nations
The Church is apostolic: The faith preached by the Apostles

What does this mean for us?
-We are part of something bigger than ‘us.’
-We need one another.
-We need a worldwide view.
-We need the Church and the Church needs us.

Matthew 16:18: “I will build my church, and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.”
