The church is one of the most misunderstood and underappreciated communities in the world. The church is not a man-made system or structure but a family of believers, ordained by Jesus Himself for eternal purposes. This family expresses itself in smaller, local congregations around the world. In this episode, Nathan and Mike begin a conversation about the existence of the church and why it is crucial for everyone follower of Jesus to be connected to the local expression of his body.
