CHURCH (Believers, Body of Christ, Disciples)


What is the church?

BIBLE READING: Acts 17:22-34

KEY BIBLE VERSE: The God who made the world and everything in it is the Lord of heaven and earth and does not live in temples built by hands.

The church is not a building. Paul’s address is a good example of how to communicate the gospel. Paul did not begin by reciting Jewish history, as he usually did, for this would have been meaningless to his Greek audience. He began by building a case for the one true God, using examples they understood . Then he established common ground by emphasizing what they agreed on about God . Finally he moved his message to the person of Christ, centering on the resurrection . When you witness to others, you can use Paul’s approach: use examples, establish common ground, and then move people toward a decision about Jesus Christ.
