The Holy Catholic Church & Communion of Saints
Passage: 1 Corinthians 12:12–12:13, Romans 12:3–12:5, Ephesians 4:1–4:16
"The church, according to Scripture, is not a religious club, a voluntary association of like-minded Christians who cultivate friendships and engage in joint projects. It is rather the institution of Christ and of the Spirit, formed by his power and governed by his word." —Edmund Clowney, The Church, 58.
