Chestnut Ridge Church
Why We...—Part 4
Many people have given in to the notion that church is no longer an important part of American society. Some view it as irrelevant. Others presume the church is out of touch with the modern world. Jesus says otherwise. By contrast, the Bible proclaims that the church is the hope of the world—it will prevail even when everything else fails. Throughout the series, we’ll explore what it means to be a part of the spiritual family, and how we can continue to overcome those misconceptions. Let’s discover how we can be the church by showing love, kindness, and grace through actions in faith.

Problem | People don't see the opportunity they have to impact friends and family for Christ
Solution | We are invited to be part of God's invitation to a lost world
Being a fully participating member of the church involves four things:
• Serving

"John’s description of him marks him not merely as a community leader but as one of the revered seventy, who along with the high priest composed the Sanhedrin, the equivalent of the Jewish Supreme Court." –G.L. Borchert
• The problem is sin.
• The solution is Jesus—because of who he was and what he came to do.
