3rd Sunday in Advent December 12, 2021


SUB-THEME 8: The Church and covenant with the Living God – (1) TOPIC: The Church of Christ – What it is

TEXTS: Rom 12:1-5; Rev 7:9-15

AIM: To define the church of Christ and its composition.

INTRODUCTION: The Church of Christ is the body of all true believers bound by the core beliefs of the virgin birth, suffering, death, resurrection, ascension and the coming back in the glory of Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior of the world (Saints alive). It is the assembly of redeemed people in all ages who confessed Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord (Saints Triumphant). The true body of Christ is not just a group of individuals that worship under one roof, registered as members of a particular local assembly or denomination that meet with common and sustained financial obligations. It is only God who knows those who are believers and qualified for God’s eternal kingdom. (2 Tim. 2: 19).


1. Using the following Biblical references give a characteristic description of what the Church of Christ is: 1Cor 12:13; Col. 1: 23-24; Rev 7:9-15.

2. How do simple folks conceive the Church of Christ in our age? 1 Cor. 1: 10-13;

3. What was Jesus’ wish for His Church? John 17: 20-23; Rom 12:4-8

4. From your experience, discuss how denominationalism affects the Church of God today?


CONCLUSION: The Church of Christ is made up of saints here on earth and the saints triumphant in heaven. Let us all continue to strive to be among the saints here on earth so as to be numbered among the saints in heaven.

FOOD FOR THOUGHT: Physical buildings and denominationalism may divide the Church, but faith and holiness will unite her.

MEMORY VERSE– 1 Cor. 12: 13 “For by one Spirit we were all baptized into one body – whether Jews or Greeks, whether slaves or free – and have all been made to drink into one Spirit.”
