And I tell you, you are Peter, and on this rock I will build my church, and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it. (Matthew 16:18)
This is the first time “ecclesia” (church) is used in the New Testament, and one of two times Jesus talks about the Church. The word itself means a called out group of people and it held much significance in the Greco-Roman world. It was a group of people who held a unified cause and responsibilities.
But what does it mean to be the Church in the New Covenant? What does it mean to be a member The Grove? Join us for this 5 week class as we find clarity from God’s Word.
