Ephesians 3:10, 11 NLT
“God’s purpose in all this was to use the church to display his wisdom in its rich variety to all the unseen rulers and authorities in the heavenly places. This was his eternal plan, which he carried out through Christ Jesus our Lord.”

Do you ever wonder why we have church? What is the church? What is it for? God created the church. It is His special creation. It is the Body of Christ. It is the people of God–all who believe in Jesus from all parts of the world and all times. The church exists for God. It’s here to glorify God in the world, to show God to the world, and to display God’s mercy to spiritual beings we can’t even see.
