Unit 1: Giving Bold Testimony
IN MANY CITIES one can find a bewildering variety of churches. Some are large, some are small. Some meet in elaborate buildings, some meet in homes. Some are governed by boards of members, some are directed by a senior minister who calls most of the shots. Why are churches so different? That is a tough question, so an easier (and perhaps better one) might be, “How are churches alike?” In other words, what are the core things that makes a church a church?
