What is the Church?

I’m John Thompson and it’s great to be working with LLCC – I’ve now been here for a month.  As we launch into this new season, we’re looking at the question ‘What is the Church’.  Scripture gives us 3 images:

1) The Church is ‘Living Stones made into a Spiritual House where the very presence of God dewlls’ (1 Peter 2, 1 Cor 3, Eph 2).

2) The Church is the Body of Christ – continuing the works that he calls us to and building one another up with Christ as the Head of the Body (Eph 4, 1 Cor 12).

3) The Church is the Bride of Jesus Christ (Eph 5, John 3, Rev 21).

Others are also coming to speak to our community – bringing God’s word on other topics to build us up and commission us for mission and service.  If you’ve missed a sermon you can download it from the ‘Sermon audio’ page.  It’s an exciting time for the church.  We look forward to seeing you on Sundays and other times – see our calendar and events pages for details.
