“And the Lord added to their number day by day those who were being saved.” Acts 2:47
When God saves a person, that person never remains alone but is brought into the family of God – the ‘Church’. The New Testament pattern establishes that no person is ever saved without being added, and no person is added without being saved. The church is not a divine afterthought or optional extra for the Christian life. It stands at the center of God’s eternal purposes to display his character to the world.
And our focus is therefore the MISSION God's given to the church.
