To love Christ is to love His church. So say the authors of this fresh look at four defining characteristics of the church. Though many people see the church as unimportant--even a hindrance to spirituality--this book reminds us that "the church is God's gift to his children for provision, protection, and growth. The church is the vessel for the display of God's glory." Three pastor-scholars explore the meaning for evangelicals today of the Nicene Creed's affirmation of the church as "one, holy, catholic, and apostolic." Their desire is that we may love Christ more by loving his church, serve him better by serving his body, and realize more fully our union with him through fellowship with his people.
