The New Testament Church

by David A. Dewitt

Overview

This book defines, describes, and discusses what the apostles understood when they talked about the church. This book is about what was going on in the first-century church, not an attempt to tell anyone how to do that today. The apostles wrote under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, and they did not just put things in their letters to take up space. There is a reason why they defined, described, and illustrated the church the way they did. Examples are not commands, but neither are they irrelevant. As you have opportunity, apply the mentality of the apostles whenever you can, to whomever you can, in any way you can.
