Who is Your Church?

“He has been restoring to the body a living knowledge of what it means to be the mystical body of Christ” Amy Chapman, Who is Your Church? ::1

My wife has been hooked on this series by our dear friend Amy (the Amy who married Derek in our back yard). Well done, Amy!!!!!

Sampler from Number 1:

“Right now we are in the midst of one of these major restorational moves of God. Especially in the last 10 years, He has been a restoring to the body a living knowledge of what it means to be the mystical body of Christ–what does being the mystical church, the ”body of Christ“ actually mean? What is the spiritual house of God, worldwide? This is why Ephesians has suddenly gotten so popular, too, as it really is the major revelation in the Bible on what it means to be the mystical house of God.”

“It is also why many movements like cell groups, house churches, intentional communities, the emergent metaphors and other interdenominational networks are happening all around the church–these all contain seeds of this restorational truth. And for the most part, they are genuine movements of God to bring new light, fresh wind into His people. Many of them are correctives, serving to remind the church that she is of course not a building of rocks but living stones, breathing, connected and transcending buildings and boundaries between people”.
