What Does the Church Offer the World?

In every generation, despite the cultural environment, the church offers certain things to the world. In Sunday’s message, I proclaimed five things the church provides the world in every generation and setting. These are:

  1. The Word of God
  2. Sacraments (Water Baptism and Communion)
  3. The Presence of God
  4. Tangible Love (serving the needs of humanity)
  5. Hope (The reign of Christ).

This is not an exhaustive list, but it is a great starting place to identify the unique call of the church. We are different from the other earthly entities because we are the gateway to the divine.
