When the Lord Jesus left this earth, He promised those who believed in Him power to be His witnesses throughout the world. The community of believers is called “the church.” In this series, we will look at the makeup of the church, its mission, as well as its destiny. We will also look at some of the differences, as well as the things in common between Protestants and Roman Catholics.
The Church: God’s People In Todays World
What exactly do we mean by the word “church?” Are we talking about a building, people, or both?
In this book we will consider some issues concerning the church. We will look at such things as: the definition of the church, the mission of the church, and the differences between the local and true church, and what is also known as the invisible church.
This is a crucial topic to study since it is through the church, the believers in Jesus Christ, that the Lord is spreading His message to a lost and sinful world. Consequently, we should have an understanding of what the Bible has to say about this important topic.
Protestants And Roman Catholics: Where Do They Agree And Disagree?
Protestants and Roman Catholics are the two largest Christian groups in the world. They have much in common but also much that divides them. In this book, we will look at a number of issues that both unite as well as divide, these two Christian groups. Subjects such as Mary, the papacy, where final authority comes from, salvation from sin, purgatory and the priesthood of believers are among the topics we will examine.
