WHAT IS THE CHURCH OF JESUS CHRIST!
The church is not:
* An ark for the saving of a select few.
* A ferryboat to take effortless passengers to the shores of
* A life insurance company, with no obligation on policyholders
accepts the payment of a small annual premium.
* A social set, welcoming certain people and excluding others
from its fellowship.
* A Sunday pleasure club for the providing of pleasant
occupation on the day of rest.
THE CHURCH IS:
* A lifeboat for the rescue of sin-wrecked and perishing souls.
* A family, in which love and service are expected from each
member to each member.
* An organized community, with constant activities and continual
growth and development.
* A company of believers who have found the one way of life and
obey the one Lord of life.
* A union of those who love for the benefit of those who suffer.
* A center of social worship, in which the spiritual life of
each is helped by the spiritual life of his fellow.
• The representative, Ambassadors -- the "body" -- of Jesus
Christ on the earth, reflecting his spirit and controlled by his
will AND DOING HIS WORK!.
