In this first session on church membership, Scott Brown outlines the nature and activities of a church. It is the Lord Himself who defines what a church is and what it does. The problem with church life in any generation is created when the leaders become captains of their own ships and create the church anew in their generation. In this message, Scott Brown outlines the important matters of what the Bible teaches regarding what the church is and what the church does. He first explains the nature and purpose of the church and then outlines what the church actually does in the world, according to scripture.
