    Review
    Last week we asked, “What is a local church?”
    A Definition: A local church is a group of Christians who regularly gather in Christ’s name to officially affirm and oversee one another’s membership in Jesus Christ and his kingdom through gospel preaching and gospel ordinances.
    Now I want to ask the question, “what is a farmer?”
    A Definition: A farmer is a person who produces food from a farm for a living
    So the follow up question is what does a farmer do?
    What doesn’t a farmer do?
    Acquires a place to farm
    Makes the soil healthy
    Buys and plants seeds
    Waters
    Controls pests
    Builds infrastructure
    Buys, uses and maintains equipment
    Waits...
    pulls weeds
    harvests
    saves seeds
    sells produce
    repeat
    So today’s real question
    What does the local church do?
    First verses
    The overall purpose
    Jesus called on people to follow Him.
    Jesus called “disciples”
    What did Jesus’ ministry primarily consist of?
    Calling disciples
    Preaching/teaching
    Healing
    John 4:23–24 ESV
    23 But the hour is coming, and is now here, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth, for the Father is seeking such people to worship him. 24 God is spirit, and those who worship him must worship in spirit and truth.”

    I. The church worships

    APPLICATION:

    Second Point
    Matthew 28:19–20 ESV
    19 Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.”

    II. The church gathers more to worship

    APPLICATION: Multiplication
    Third Point
    Matthew 14:14 ESV
    14 When he went ashore he saw a great crowd, and he had compassion on them and healed their sick.

    III. The church loves others

    Fourth Point
    John 13:34 ESV
    34 A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another: just as I have loved you, you also are to love one another.

    IV. The church loves “one another”

    How?
