Confession… The Foundation of the Church

As we continue to examine the question, “What is the church?”, Pastor Jim takes us back to the very beginning – Jesus’ exchange with Peter, the rock upon which he built His Church.

God has always looked for someone who would authentically confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, and then has built on that simple, yet profound, confession.

(Jesus) asked his disciples, ‘Who do people say the Son of Man is?’  They replied, ‘Some say John the Baptist, others say Elijah, and still others, Jeremiah or one of the prophets.’ ‘But what about you?’ he asked. ‘Who do you say I am?’  Simon Peter answered, ‘You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.’ …on this rock I will build my church, and the gates of Hades will not overcome it. 

-Matthew 16:13-18
