    It means that when true Israel was baptized by the Spirit on the day of Pentecost, true Israel became the New Testament church. Thus, there is continuity between true Israel and the church. This is why the Reformed confessions can speak of the church as existing from the beginning of the world (for example, Belgic Confession, Art. 27). Let me begin by apologizing for the title of this book. I realize that “church” is the wrong word for many of the religious gatherings I visited. When I began the experiment, I didn’t realize I would choose such a diverse collection of experiences, so “church” felt like the right word.

Matt Slick. I write so that you may know how one ought to conduct himself in the household of God, which is the church of the living God, the pillar and support of the truth." (1 Tim. ). The Christian church should be a reflection of Jesus’ love, words, and deeds. Its goal should be to glorify God, make Jesus known, develop godly people, and make disciples of every nation.
