THE CHURCH


 

The church is the body of Christ.  Christ will build the end time church on the knowledge that He is the born Son of God from the beginning [sometime prior to the original creation.] The church is for feeding the flock, perfecting the saints, work of the ministry, building the body.  To prepare a people prepared for the Lord.
