The New Testament Church
And the gates of hell shall not prevail against it” (Matthew 16:18). Long after organizations built on the wisdom of man have crumbled, New Testament churches will endure as God’s instruments in the earth. The greatest source of security a believer can have is to be sheltered within the folds of a local church, built according to the New Testament pattern. Let us return to the blueprints of the Church that are given to us in the New Testament. The Lord is restoring the Church to its original apostolic purity and power. This series of 27 studies gives the plan and pattern for the New Testament church.
