CHURCH-8 - The Church Is Essential To Salvation
The apostle Paul encouraged the elders at Ephesus to shepherd, or oversee, the church of God, which He purchased with His own blood. Is the church essential to salvation? Must I be a member of the church that you read about in the Bible to go to heaven? Is it something I must be a part of to be right with God? This is the question that we hope to look to God's word to give the answer to today.
