What is the church? For many of us the church is the place where we worship each week. We view it as an address, a location, maybe even a building. Interestingly, the Bible never describes the church as a place for us to go. You see, the Bible always describes the church as a people who live in relationship with God and with one another. This means that we can’t simply go to church. We are called to be the church.
Many times we begin by talking about what we should do and how we should do whatever it is that we believe we should do. However, being always precedes doing. To be the church God has called us to be we must begin by focusing on who God desires for us to be. Every good journey needs a roadmap, and we have included a roadmap for our journey to be the church.
