Christ’s Message To His Church – Series 1

Pastor Greg Pratt

Join us this morning as Pastor Greg Pratt teaches us about how the Church is the body of Christ!

When Jesus came into the region of Caesarea Philippi, He asked His disciples, saying, “Who do men say that I, the Son of Man, am?”
Matthew 16:13

So they said, “Some say John the Baptist, some Elijah, and others Jeremiah or one of the prophets.” He said to them, But who do you say that I am?”
Matthew 16:14-15

Simon Peter answered and said, “You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.”
Matthew 16:16

Jesus answered and said to him, “Blessed are you, Simon Bar-Jonah, for flesh and blood has not revealed this to you, but My Father who is in heaven.
Matthew 16:17

And I also say to you that you are Peter, and on this rock I will build My church, and the gates of Hades shall not prevail against it.
Matthew 16:18

What is the Church?

The Church is not:

  • a building
  • a denomination
  • a religion

The Church is a movement of faith in Jesus Christ.

It is the Body of Christ

For as the body is one and has many members, but all the members of that one body, being many, are one body, so also is Christ.
Corinthians 12:12

Now you are the body of Christ, and members individually.
1 Corinthians 12:27

The Church Is the Place Where God Dwells

Do you not know that you are the temple of God and that the Spirit of God dwells in you? If anyone defiles the temple of God, God will destroy him. For the temple of God is holy, which temple you are.
1 Corinthians 3:16-17
