We the Church: Is church membership biblical?

Posted by galenamissions in We the Church
Matthew 18:17  If he refuses to listen to them, tell it to the church. And if he refuses to listen even to the church, let him be to you as a Gentile and a tax collector.

When we use the term "Church discipline" people tend to get really uncomfortable. But discipline is the root discipleship. We were made for community and that community is most fully understood in the context of a healthy, connected local church.

We the Church: So just what is a church?

Posted by galenamissions in We the Church
Mat 16:18b ... on this rock I will build my church, and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.

You cannot "go to church". You can "go be with the church", "go to the church's building", or "see what a church is like", but you cannot "go to church". That's because the church is a "We" not an "It". The bride of Christ is made up of all the redeemed of all the ages, and is locally expressed in a Gospel centered community, who is making Jesus known. But even with that simple explanation, "Church" has come to mean something different to so many than it did for the early church.
In this sermon we'll look at What the church is not, and also what the church is. Delivered to the Galena Bible Church, Sunday August 16th, 2015 by pastor Chris Kopp.

Colossians: The Gospel to You

Posted by galenamissions in Colossians

The Gospel is personal. The Gospel is relational. The Gospel is Missional. These ideas are how Paul ends his letter to the church in Colossae. And it's something we need to remember.
