The Church Jesus Is Building – Pt 1 – How The Church Must Change – Ralph Howe – 2020-11-28.
Jesus told us that He would build His Church (Matthew 16:18). He had a specific task for His Church to complete for Him. And, He had a design for His Church – the way it would be built so as to allow it to express His resurrection life in the world. His design included every aspect of the life of the Church. Built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets the Church would minister in power continuing the five ministries that Jesus fulfilled while ministering with His disciples. Only the fullness of the Lord’s five-fold ministry will complete the task He left us and defeat the work of the devil in the world today.
Session 1 – How The Church Must Change – The Church In Transition.
In the first teaching, Ralph will be sharing a number of the many changes that will be taking place in the life of the Church as we tear down the Church that religion has built over the centuries and embrace the fundamental life releasing design that Jesus intended for His Church from the very beginning. Much of what we accept as the biblical model of or design for the Church is simply mot biblical at all. Jesus is revealing to us what He is working to change within the current expression of Church to allow us to experience His presence and power and then share His love with those who do not know Him. So, a look at ten or twelve of the generally accepted aspects of the life of the Church that will need to change.
