The Future of the Church


Sermon shared by Jonathan Russell

January 2007
Summary: Examining the churchís future from both the theological and practical aspect
Series: Church 101
Denomination: Baptist
Audience: General adults
The question to ask: "What is going to happen to the church in the future?"

The answer is two-sided: there is a theological answer and a practical answer

The Theological Side:
1. There will never be a time when the church does not exist (Matt. 16:18).

2. There will be times when the church falters and fails (the problems in the Corinthian church, i.e., 1 Cor. 1:10; 11:18).

3. There will come a time when the church will be perfected by Christ (Ephesians 5:25-27).

The Practical Side:

A. The church is th esum totaly of those who comprise it (aka: members).
B. The practical future of the church is dependent upon a believerís relationship with Christ!

Following the instructions of Romans 12:1-2 will ensure a bright practical future for the church:

1. REVEAL yourself to God: "offer your bodies"
2. REMOVE yourself from the world: "Do not conform"
3. REARRANGE yourself in relation to God and the world: "but be transformed"
