Anchor of Truth

There have always been many voices saying “This is the way to know God.” Today’s media explosion has created more voices and more confusion. Why then another? Personal connection with other believers cannot be replaced by the mass media. It is much more satisfying to have a deep spiritual relationship with ten believers than to be in a crowd of ten thousand. Every individual is important to God, and His plan involves each one in a very real way. There are things that are important to God that can only take place in close personal relationships. Our purpose is to share truth to help strengthen your relationship with God and with other believers in your locality. The goal of God is to build a family of His children together in love, walking in truth. Personal submission and obedience to Christ will bring conformity of each member to Christ, and a growing expression of the nature of God in a local gathering. The testimony going out to the world around will be as a “light set on a hill that cannot be hidden” and “the pillar and ground of the truth.”

Many today think of the church as simply a meeting, a place to worship, or an organization. But the essence of the church is something else called the “Body of Christ.” What does that mean? How are we “the body of Christ”? Today’s program explores that subject.


From  “Secret of His Purpose” by John Kennedy (chapter 4):
• A gospel that is only individual in nature is “half a gospel”
• The condition for entering into the “fullness of Christ” is subjection to Christ in His body
• The purpose of the Body of Christ is to give expression to His life
• The Body of Christ is a gathering of believers in a locality that function together
• Pattern and life are equally import to reach God’s end purpose
• The church as the Body of Christ expresses the authority of Christ here on earth

In Summary:
• We must be connected to the Head (who is Christ), under His authority
• We are related to each other by the Spirit (baptized into one body—I Cor. 12:13)
• Our functioning is according to the direction of the Head and His grace
• Submission to Christ in His Body deals with individualism (self-sufficiency)
• God’s purpose is that we give forth an expression of Christ together
• Love is the bond of perfection that enables us to move as “one man”
