The Bible knows nothing of solitary saints or spiritual hermits isolated from relationships with other believers. Following Christ involves belonging, not just believing. In this message series, we are going to see in the letter to the Ephesian church why the church is central to Jesus' plan to reach the world through Christ-like followers!
· A mature church IS DESIGNED TO GROW.
· The goal of church growth is to BUILD ITSELF UP IN LOVE.
· Put OFF THE OLD AND PUT ON THE NEW.
· The right words at the right time to the right people can BRING LIFE TO THE BODY.

· Gossip can KILL A CHURCH BODY.
· Bitterness reflects a SMOLDERING RESENTMENT.
· Wrath comes from RAGE, THE PASSION OF THE MOMENT.
· Deep Internalized long-term Anger PRODUCES HOSTILITY.

· Clamor is the outcry of out-of-control STRIFE IN OUR LIVES.

· Slander is KNOWINGLY UNTRUE EVIL SPEECH.
· Malice is EVIL AT THE ROOT OF ALL VICES.
Regardless of the popular sentiment in the American church today, a Christ-follower cannot separate the health of their relationship with Christ from the health of their relationship in and with the local church. Jesus has so identified himself to the church that it is said to be his very body. Does your level of involvement in your local church demonstrate that you love and are committed to Jesus’ body, the church?
