Fellowship's Purpose: Spiritual Growth…
It would seem from Paul’s letters to the Ephesian and Colossian churches that the implicitly-stated function or purpose of the form referred to as the body of Christ, or “the church,” is to be a place where gifted Spiritual leadership secures a Spiritual home or environment, where truth is spoken and God’s children are Spiritually rebirthed and are empowered to grow up and mature, both as individuals members and as a Spiritual whole or family, into “the measure of the stature which belongs to the fullness of Christ” (Eph. 4:11-16; Col. 1:28-29).
Very simply put, at Fellowship, we describe the New Testament’s church’s function this way: the biblical purpose, or function, of the form known as the New Testament church is: to create the biblical, Spiritual environment that encourages Christ-like Spiritual birth, growth and maturity.
