The church in God's program

Throughout the course of history God has worked in the world in a variety of ways through individuals, nations, and peoples. The focus of his present work is the church. That which was begun in the scriptures, as men and women were called to acknowledge the lordship of Christ, continues today in fulfillment of Christ's promise to build his church. Not only is Christ building his church, but it is the primary instrument through which he ministers in the world. As Christ was sent by the Father, so the church bears the ambassadorial role for its Lord as sent ones with a message of reconciliation to the world (Jn. 20:21). - Preface
