Hello Kitchen Table Theology Family! We’re your hosts, Jen Denton, and Pastor Jeff Cranston. This is our second episode in a new series on the Church. The Doctrine of the Church is also known as the doctrine of Ecclesiology. And over the course of this series, we will delve into seven snapshots of what the New Testament teaches us about the church. The NT says that the Church is a flock, a fellowship, a body, a bride, a family, as God’s House, and a priesthood.
[11:36] Disunity in the Church
[16:59] Breaking Down the Meaning of Fellowship
[18:50] So What?
“Fellowship is not just something the church is, it’s something the church does.” - Pastor Jeff Cranston
“When we talk about unity, we have unity, because we're all saved in the church, by Christ, not because we all look alike, act alike, breathe alike, talk alike, or even dress alike.” - Pastor Jeff Cranston
“The love Christians have for one another can influence others toward faith in Jesus Christ. And that's all part of fellowship.” - Pastor Jeff Cranston
“Many believers today wrongly don't recognize the importance of fellowship or local church involvement. But Christian fellowship is absolutely essential to our spiritual growth.” - Pastor Jeff Cranston
