Part of the glory and gravity of the local church is that each community, each body, each expression has something to say about Jesus.
“You will be my witnesses,” the risen Christ told his disciples. And that’s who they were. That’s what they did.
Each local church, in both its internal and external workings, bears witness to its understanding of who Jesus is. In worship, in discipleship, in mission, in staff meetings and visitor greetings, we bear witness. For better or worse, for deeper or shallower, with more compassion or less.
The vital question then becomes, Who do we say he is?
