The purpose of the Church can be summed up with the mnemonic, WIFE.
W – Worship
I – Instruction
F – Fellowship
E – Evangelism
In this second week of learning about the purpose of the Church, we focus on instruction within the Church. Who do you believe is telling the truth? Whose voice do you believe? Whose voice did the early Church listen to and believe in?
