What really is a local church body? What function does it play or should play within our community, in our country, and even in our world? But far more important is the question of, why do we as Christians gather in fellowship? And not just on Sundays. What are the biblical mandates, principles, the purposes and responsibilities behind us doing so? Scripture does command us not to forsake the assembling of ourselves together, but though it does, does scripture also show us what those purposes are behind the command? Well in this topical sermon by Pastor Tim Bresnahan those questions are taken up and answered.
