This past weekend, my church celebrated 40 years of ministry. Wow. I’ve been a member for about 20 of those years and while I can’t always say that our experience has been easy, I will testify that being a part of a church body has been a true blessing. As we marked this milestone, I became overwhelmed with emotion as I realized that my life—and my family—would not be the same without the positive influence and the relationships formed through my church.
Like me, you’ve probably wondered why our commitment to the church is so important to our faith, or even heard people say, “I believe in God, but not in the church.” What do you think? Do you really need the church? You and your listeners will get some perspective this week as Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth teaches on the importance of the church. She says . . .
The Church was not man’s idea; it is not man’s institution. It is God’s idea; it is God’s plan. You’re going to see that you need the Church; I need the Church. Every child of God needs the Church. But I want us to have a better understanding of why as we look into God’s Word.
Details on this series along with scripted daily promos are now available in February’s Program Tool Kit here.
