Why Another Church?
THE NECESSITY OF THE CHURCH
When the Son of God took upon flesh, he assumed the role of Mediator between God and man. As mediator, he exercises the offices of prophet, priest, and king. As king, Christ is ruler over a kingdom that has been inaugurated (Matt. 3:2; Mark 1:15), but awaits consummation in the new heavens and new earth.
