Which Church? A New Series of Posts

Palm Tree New Post Series Which Church?

The Bible is clear: regular fellowship with a local group of believers is an essential aspect of the Christian life (Hebrews 10:25). Sounds simple enough. Unfortunately there are so many different “churches” the question of which local church to associate with is not an easy question to answer.

Today, Digital Sojourner posted the first installment of a new 13 part series regarding the New Testament’s depiction of what a properly functioning local church should look like. Our plan is to post a new installment every Tuesday until the series concludes. The author of this series of posts is brother Jack Hay, who is an experienced and dedicated Bible teacher. I asked brother Hay to give a brief introduction of himself, and this is what he wrote:

I was saved as a boy in Prestwick, SW Scotland, and was commended to the Lord’s Work from the assembly there in 1972 at which time I moved 100 miles north to Perthshire. Since then I have been in fellowship with the assembly meeting in the Gospel Hall in Perth. For a number of years I was involved mainly in pioneer evangelism, but as the years have passed, more time has been spent in teaching the Scriptures. I take an interest in a few places where simple teaching is needed, e.g. Sri Lanka, where I have been visiting at least twice a year over recent years.

So, please join us each Tuesday as we explore God’s Word together. And, as always, be “a good Berean” (Acts 17:11) by searching the Scriptures to see if these things are so.
