Sunday School,  January 13, 2008

When the Lord Jesus announced that He would “build His church,” He was introducing His disciples into a whole world of exciting theology. What exactly did He mean by the word “church,” and in what way would it prevent the gates of hell from ever prevailing against it? Additionally, who (or what) is the rock upon which the Lord Jesus builds His church? And what does all of this mean for the Christian today? In this first of two lessons, Richard Winston explains the nature of the church and its role in our lives!
