The Body of Christ
The Spirit Of Life In Christ Ministries believe that the Church is the Body of Christ expressed as the church individual, the church local, and the church universal and invisible (all saints of all places and all times united together under one Lord), and that the basis of our fellowship is in Jesus Christ, in the power of the Spirit. Eph 2:13-22, 4:3-6, I John 1:6-7 As such, we believe the church to be more than just a building or a gathering of people. It is a body living in relationship and harmony under the direction of the head, Jesus Christ. I Corinthians 6:15; II Corinthians 1:1, Romans 16:5; I Peter 2:4-5; Eph 2:19-22; I Corinthians 12:12-31; Romans 12:4-5; Ephesians 4:11-16. The local church is an expression of the community and fellowship of God.
