An excerpt from the introduction to the study.
“Unfortunately, most Christians have developed a faulty view of what it means to be a church member. Many of us talk about our church in terms of what we get out of it. This consumer mentality focuses on the perks we gain from the church, which makes church membership sound more like club membership.
In reality, being part of the body of Christ means so much more.
The Book of Ephesians helps us see the true benefits that come from our connections to Christ and His Church. Within this study, we’ll discover six ways that church members are connected: connected in Christ, connected in unity, connected in growth, connected through words, connected in service, and connected through prayer.
During this study, you’ll discover that, through Christ, we are all truly connected in a way that lasts not just for a lifetime, but for all eternity.”
