Part of God’s Plan
We believe the CHURCH IS THE BODY OF CHRIST ON EARTH TODAY! Jesus established the church and it exists to perform God’s will on earth. Believers are to invest themselves in the life and work of the church.
There is Nothing Like the Church!
What Happens at Church?

Text: Hebrews 8
COVENANT: The act of God in freely establishing a binding relationship with humanity. It may be conditional or unconditional.
God has a plan of rescue, redemption and restoration for His creation!
God makes Covenants with His people:
-Genesis 9: Noah
-Genesis 15: Abraham
-Exodus 24: Moses
-2 Samuel 7: David
God promised that a New Covenant would be established with His people: Jeremiah 31; Daniel 9; Isaiah 42, 49, 59; Ezekiel 16
Jesus announced the arrival of The New Covenant! Luke 22:20
Jesus is the Mediator of The New Covenant! Hebrews 8
The Church embodies the purposes of God for His creation. The Church is a part of God’s great plan!
