Why the Church?

Is it better to worship alone or to attend Church?  That’s really not a trick question.  God has a plan for the Church. It was His idea, to begin with!  Pastor and Professor Dr. Eric Redmond will help us understand God’s plan for the local church and how it should look and act in this post-Christian culture.  The phone lines will be open so you can be part of this timely discussion.
