We learned in Lesson 1 how...through Jesus' death on the cross...He fulfilled the Law of Moses...and ushered in the New Covenant that God had promised in the days of Jeremiah the prophet. 

When Jesus ascended to heaven forty days after His resurrection, He told His disciples to wait in Jerusalem for what God had promised...the pouring out of the Holy Spirit as prophesied by the prophet Joel...and the establishment of His Kingdom...the church:

Jesus said in Matthew 16:18, "...upon this rock I will build My church; and the gates of Hades shall not overpower it." (NAS)

In this lesson we will take an introductory look at the church that Jesus built.

  • What is Jesus' church and what does it mean to me?
  • Who is the head of Jesus' church and how is it structured?
  • How does God want the church to worship?

  • How can we be added to His church?
