Why the church matters



There are many compelling reasons why the Church is integral to our faith in Jesus Christ. Martin Luther fleshes out another very practical reason for the church...

No man should be alone when he opposes Satan. The church and the ministry of the Word were instituted for this purpose, that hands may be joined together and one may help another. If the prayer of one doesn't help, the prayer of another will.
