A World Off Target

First in the “Why the Church?” series.
Delivered September 11, 2005 by Rev. John Schmidt.

Theme: We are starting a four-week series on the purpose of the church. Why does the church exist? This week we are looking specifically at the fact that the church exists because God is doing something to fix a world that is off target and the church is part of how God is doing that. The world is in opposition to God who is resolutely and constantly hostile to the evil in our lives. But God is not content with leaving things there. By Grace we are saved.
