Called Out – Why Church?

What defines church culture?  What does it look like to represent the church? 

Unfortunately, you can find churches that have embraced almost anything you can think of as a defining feature.  Some churches are social clubs.  Some are basically a charity.  Some churches are all about a celebrity pastor or incredible worship team.  Every church has a culture and a focus.  However, unlike other groups, the church shouldn’t merely be a culture we can agree on, but a culture set forth in scripture. 

Last week we started looking at the topic of the Church by looking at what Jesus said about how he would establish the church and nothing would stop it.  As we dig into what characterizes His church, there are many passages that give us insight, but today we’re going to study 1 Peter 2:9-12, which gives us a pretty good summary.
