What is the point of the Church today? Why are we supposed to be a part of a local church? What is the Church? What is the purpose of Gracepoint Church specifically? In this sermon series, Pastor Justin examines scripture defining the Church as the people for whom Christ died and the people that are created by the salvation which Christ brings. He explores the scriptural picture of the local church. In his teaching he discusses the importance of a personal membership commitment in the local church and the biblical directive for the local body of believers to worship biblically, make disciples and have a global impact by sharing the gospel message. The vision, mission, and values of Gracepoint Church as a local church body will also be discussed.
