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? Our purpose is to share truth to help strengthen your relationship with God and with other believers in your locality.

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.

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.”

Episode 63 A Beginning Expression of the Church

What should we expect in a beginning expression of the church? We see in some degree what God wants, but how do we begin? What is our responsibility? We want to obey God, but what truth is important at the foundation?  How does an expression of the church come into being? We may have come out of a more formal institution of some kind in hunger for more reality but are not clear in what we need to do.  What truth is essential at the foundation? How do we know that God is gathering a people together and it is not just an effort of man? We face these and many related questions in a beginning gathering of God’s children. 

Today we share with you a time of ministry by Gordon Gentry on this subject. The setting is a home in which a few brothers and sisters had been gathering once each week for several years for a Bible Study. Gordon was encouraging them in take their responsibility before God seriously and act on the truth that they had already received.

I think any gathering could benefit from the truth Gordon was sharing, but particularly a beginning gathering that is seeking to be more established and express the life of God in their locality.

The recording of this time of ministry is also located on the NT Church Source web site at the following link:
