This series by Dr. Clarence Sexton brings the believer face to face with the responsibility of belonging to a local assembly and actively serving the Saviour through that church. Step by step the reader discovers his personal responsibility to God and the true meaning of church membership. This is the study you have been waiting for to help believers in their understanding of why the Lord Jesus loved the church and gave Himself for it.
Every believer needs to understand that the Lord is doing His work in this world through local churches. What we believe about the church must come from God's Word. The chapters of this book provide a thorough study of what the Bible teaches about the local church and how we can apply that to our own lives. Table of Contents 1. Believe & Belong 2.
