"He who descended is the one who also ascended far above all the heavens, that he might fill all things. And he gave the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, the pastors and teachers, to equip the saints for the work of ministry, for building up the body of Christ." Ephesians 4:10-12

This Sunday we're continuing our sermon series on the Church-- the body of believers in Christ in the local congregation. Some people might suggest that the organized church is more trouble than it is worth, that the people in the organized church are nothing but territorial hypocrites and best avoided if possible. The problem with this attitude is that Christ himself created the organized church and blessed it with leaders who, through their work and leadership, have saved millions of souls. One such office is the office of pastor. Though pastors aren't perfect, they carry out a very special calling which comes directly from Christ. Their job, as the passage above states, is to "equip the saints for the work of ministry, for building up the body of Christ."

Come and hear more about how pastors equip and build up the church, and take a fresh look at the hand of Christ at work in your life, blessing and strengthening you for your life's work-- the work of ministry. We worship every Sunday at 10:30 a.m.
