|The Church: His Body, His Bride
By the New Testament Missionary Fellowship
The Scriptures afford us a clear understanding of the Church of Jesus Christ, which is His Body, His Bride, the very “fulness of Him which filleth all in all.” The chapters in this booklet set forth basic teaching on the structure as well as the functioning of the New Testament Church.
At Calvary, looking beyond the cross, Jesus endured the physical and spiritual agony for one great purpose—“the joy that was set before him.” (Hebrews 12:2) He saw salvation for sin-ruined humanity; He saw victory over satan and death; He saw heaven inhabited forever by the redeemed. Above all else, He saw the church.
“Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her to make her holy, cleansing her by the washing with water through the word, and to present her to himself as a radiant church, without stain or wrinkle or any other blemish, but holy and blameless.” (Ephesians 5:25-27 NIV) From Calvary, He knew, would come His bride: bone of His bone and flesh of His flesh; she would be the vessel of the plan of God on earth as He had been.
Consider the incomparable scope of the church’s calling, the breadth of what God has planned:
This is a brief look at the church as revealed in the New Testament. It is written with the hope that those who read may catch the vision of the church as Christ will have it to be.
