The Congregation The Club And The Church | cfcindia, Bangalore
In 1 Corinthians 12:13, we read that, " by one Spirit we are all baptized into one Body". The Church is described there not as a Congregation or a Club, but as a Body. "You are Christ's body and individually members of it" (1 Corinthians 12:27).
This body is built on the basis of the cross. This wineskin is the New Covenant Church.
The Congregation is an Old Covenant concept.
The Club has no covenant at all.
But the true Church is built on the basis of the New Covenant.
