A streaming video course from David Fitch at Seminary Now.
WHY DOES THE CHURCH EXIST?
Based on his book by the same name, David Fitch delves into the origins of the church, exploring the identity and calling of the body of Christ in scripture and church history. Learn about the Christian practices that shape the church and how our understandings of church might change in light of the life of the church through the centuries. At a time when the church in the US is losing credibility and cultural privilege, Fitch offers a model for thriving as God’s people in our own time and place.
