I believe that the primary role of the church is spiritual formation.
Through worship, teaching, classes, serving, conversation, care, accountability and many other specifics the faith community that is the church is about forming the souls closer to the image of God. This journey of sanctification moves us closer toward perfect love of God and neighbor.
In Matthew 28, Jesus sends the disciples to:
- make disciples
All part of spiritual formation.
Do you agree? Why or why not?
