Sharon Baptist in Hampton, VA would like to invite you to "Be the Church." Instead of just going to "church" we are to be the church. To often the church building is wrongly called the church, but rather God's people are called to "Be the Church."
Among the word pictures used to describe members of the church we find the word disciple. Throughout the Gospel accounts many times the word disciple is used. What does it mean to be a disciple of Christ? Well listen to this episode and you will find out.
As we continue to see the metaphor's that God uses concerning the Christian life, we come to this metaphor, "A student of God's Word." Much is lacking in this area today and because of this the people are not able to "Be the Church."
Throughout the New Testament God has given us many metaphors to help us understand what it means to Be the Church. In this episode, Pastor Carroll will help us to understand this metaphor "A Farmer in God's Harvest."
This year at Sharon Baptist Church we are looking at the biblical principle "Be the Church." Many today get the church confused with the church house. Because of this we need to get back to how the Bible defines the local New Testament Church. The church is not a building but rather the people of God, a called out assembly voluntarily joined together for the purpose of fulfilling the Great Commission.
