THE NEW TESTAMENT CHURCH (2017-2018)

      Our theme (focus of study) for 2017 is a detailed study of the New Testament church.  It is imperative that we understand this, as in many places the NT pattern for the church is being changed and challenged.    It is also a source of division among brethren.  So with this in mind, today we want to examine various aspects of the New Testament church.  May God, our Lord and His church be glorified as a result of this.  TATJR
