The Church

Ephesians 2:19-22

Big Idea

In Jesus, we are a transformed people being joined together and built up into a dwelling place for God.

1 We are a Transformed People

  • We were strangers and outsiders with no belonging
  • Now we are citizens of God's kingdom and members in his house
  • As Christians we are part of the universal church (all christians, in all times, everywhere) and we are part of the local church (local community of christians).

2 Jesus is Our Foundation

  • the Bible is our foundation for all truth in life and practice
  • Jesus is the cornerstone and our firm foundation (1 For. 3:10-11)
  • Jesus is our foundation and the wise person listed to his teaching and follows his instruction with obedience (Matthew 7:24-27)

3 Jesus Builds and Grows His Church

  • We are living stones (1 Peter 2:4-5)
  • Jesus is the one who grows and builds the church as we rest firmly on the foundation of Christ.
