To Establish His Church (12/23/2018)

Matthew 16:13-20, Isaac Holst:  

It’s important believers understand Jesus didn’t come to earth just to save us from our sin – that Jesus came to earth to do several other things as well.  One of the most important was to establish his church.  Jesus came to birth the church, also known as the Body of Christ, which includes Northwood Church.  So, why did Jesus birth the church?  What did Jesus (and other NT writers) say about the purpose of the church?  That’s important to know because it determines the vision and work of the church, Northwood included.  So, why do you think Jesus birthed the church?
