What Is the Church?

As I’m continuing to scheme and read, I came across this definition of church that I couldn’t have put better myself. Enjoy:

“The local church is a community of regenerated believers who confess Jesus Christ as Lord. In obedience to Scripture, they organize under qualified leadership, gather regularly for preaching and worship, observe the biblical sacraments of baptism and Communion, are unified by the Spirit, are disciplined for holiness, and scatter to fulfill the Great Commandment and the Great Commission as missionaries to the world for God’s glory and their joy.” Mark Driscoll and Dr. Gerry Breshears, Vintage Church
