What is the Foundation of the Church?

As one person who shared this video with his church group on Facebook said, “Here’s a short video with lots of truth packed into it.”

The Behold Your God: Rethinking God Biblically series was shot in 2012 and released in early 2013. Recently we have been mining the hours of interview footage we shot for that project to bring out unreleased and unseen gems that were not able to fit into the Bible study itself. This short clip from Anthony Mathenia titled “What is the Biblical Foundation of the Church” is the first in a series of forthcoming free web videos were calling “Rethinking God Biblically: the Extended Interviews.” 

In just under 7 minutes, Anthony describes a very common misconception about “success” in ministry that is a rampant malady in our culture, offers guidance to those who find themselves in man-centered churches, warns the church not to forget her one foundation, and then, at about the 3:00 mark, he launches into a soaring proclamation of the glorious doctrine of the Person and work of the Lord Jesus Christ. By the end of the video, I find that I’m left worshiping and glorying in His name, refreshed in my spirit, and with a renewed desire to follow Him wherever He goes. I hope it has the same effect on you and the ones you share it with, for His glory.

Thanks for watching
