Welcome to the Transformed podcast.
The Focus of the Church is the exaltation of Jesus Christ as King of all – our purpose, our meaning, our agenda, our income, our expenses, our treasure, our time, our talents, our lives.
In our second study on the Church, Dr. Matthew Lee Smith, lead Pastor at Pacific Baptist Church in El Segundo, California explains that the disciples of Jesus are dedicated to intimacy with Jesus, constantly seeking His direction and His will in each and every decision.
Now let’s join Pastor Matt as we discover that the focus of the church is called worship – acknowledging that God Alone through Jesus Christ is worthy of our lives!
And with that challenge to join a small group for discipleship, Dr. Smith continues answering the question: What Is The Church?
Perhaps you would you consider sharing this message with a friend? God longs to release the captives of our culture into the freedom of faith. Thank you!
If you would like to explore how you can be a more effective disciple of Jesus Christ, Dr. Smith has written a book to take you to the next level!
Growing Missional Leaders is a practical passionate, Biblical mentoring journey for individuals, small groups, leadership teams and congregations who desire to win their world for Christ.
