There are many questions concerning the church that I hope to address on this blog. My desire is to interact with readers so that I can continue to learn about God’s plan for the church. Here are some possible discussion questions:

  • What is the church (essence, nature, purpose, etc.)?
  • When does a group of people become a church?
  • Is one church dependent, independent, or interdependent on other groups?
  • What is the purpose of the gathering of the church?
  • How are the various spiritual gifts exercised in the meeting of the church?
  • What is the nature of church leadership?
  • How should church leaders interact with others in the church?

This is a very short list. There are so many others. But we can get to those in due time…
