When the church is church, when the people of God are living under the word of God and under the power of God, what happens is unity; what happens is love; what happens is faith and the new life. It becomes such a distinct and transformed community that the people outside are looking into it and are seeing such wisdom, such a wonderful thing, that they are giving glory to God and they are asking, “How come? We didn’t think this was possible. How come?”

I Believe in The Church

Nic Kyalangalilwa delivers his seventh in a nine week sermon series unpacking the foundations of the Christian faith – working through the Apostles’ Creed, a statement of belief penned in the 4th Century AD.

The Apostles’ Creed is really the foundation of what a Christian believes.

“It’s really the foundation of what a Christian believes. This is what makes the difference between what we would call a Christian faith, and a non-Christian faith.”

This sermon looks at the seventh section which refers to the Church. Nic takes us through a tour of the Bible passages relating to Church, unpacking what the Church is, how you become part of it, and what it’s ultimate purpose is in the kingdom of God.
