Doctrine of the Church


The word church is a translation of ekklesia, meaning called out or assembly.  In the New Testament it usually refers to a local group of Christians.  In this sense a church is an assembly of baptized believers under the discipline (training) of the Word of God.  They are organized to carry out the Great Commission, the administration of New Testament ordinances (baptism and the Lord's Supper), and the exercise of spiritual gifts.  When a group of Christians today follow this example, it is a church in the biblical sense of the word. 

In this course we will cover:

  • The Nature of the Church
  • The Purpose of the Church and so much more
