Unity in The Church
There are many areas in which Christians disagree. If we merely mention the words politics, economics, money, and music, we will quickly realise that all Christians do not see eye-to-eye on these matters. But how can Christians hold opinions on these important areas of life without over-emphasising them or causing disunity in the church over them? Paul addresses that very issue. Even in the early church, Christians did not always agree on these lesser matters.
Many people view Evangelical churches as being divided because there seem to be so many denominations. Yet, the Bible talks about true Christian unity in a different way. According to the Bible’s teaching on Christian unity, members of several different denominations can all be unified in Christ. How can this be since they go to different churches? The Apostle Paul gives us the answer, but it contains elements we would never expect.
At several points in the New Testament, Christians are told to be unified together in their churches. Yet what exactly does this unity look like? Paul tells us more about this Christian unity, both what it looks like and where it comes from. It is a different, difficult and divine unity that cannot be brought about by mere human effort or by avoiding conflict at all costs. Join us and find out what this unity is and how it works.
