Chris Wall • Luke 9:18-27 ESV

Effective Church in 2021

Pastor Chris Wall • Colossians 1:18-23 Last year, we took fourteen weeks taking a long doctrinal look at the church. One of the biggest lessons we learned was that the mission and message given to the church is the only hope for humanity. Not only is the church commissioned to spread the gospel, but the church is commissioned to equip the body to serve the Lord. In this passage, we get a glimpse of what an effective church looks like.
