Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with

all your mind. This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second

is like it: Love your neighbor as yourself. All the Law and the Prophets

hang on these two commandments. (Matthew 22:37-40)

“And he gave the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, the shepherds and teachers, to equip the saints for the work of ministry, for building up the body of Christ, until we all attain to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to mature manhood, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ, so that we may no longer be children, tossed to and fro by the waves and carried about by every wind of doctrine, by human cunning, by craftiness in deceitful schemes.”
(Ephesians 4:11–14, ESV)  

“THE CHURCH” Synopsis: What is the Church? How is it (she) supposed to work? Who owns the Church? Who runs the church? What is the mission of the Church? These are but a few of the questions to be answered. The theme text is Ephesians 4:11-14. The nearly year-long study is upon the Epistle to the Romans, often looked at as the handbook of Christianity.
