Church Discipline is a teaching in the New Testament that the church is to practice with members who are living in unrepentant sin and harming the body of Christ.

Much is known about Christianity, yet many people would have difficulty explaining exactly what Christianity was founded upon or what is most central to Christianity’s claims.

Jesus promises his disciples that the Holy Spirit would give them power to be his witnesses to the ends of the earth. The Spirit also distributes gifts to every Christian to build up the church. In this final talk of the series, explore what the gifts of the Spirit are and how we are to use them.
