What is the church? The answer to that question has more weight and more importance than most people realize. When it comes to defining the church we have only two options: we will either use philosophy (man's best thinking) to define the church or we will use theology (God's revealed wisdom) to define the church. We live in the day of the high-jacked church when churches aren't biblical churches that are based on theology but rather they are based on philosophy. Many worship services are man-centered rather than God-centered and fail to equip the saints for the work of the ministry. We need a sound doctrine of the church in order to accomplish the will of God for His glory.
