The Role of the Church featuring Tony Evans

Page 1


In Matthew 16, we get the first mention of the word “church” and it comes from Jesus. The ecclesia were men and women called out of the general population and given legislative authority in the spiritual realm. In this 45-minutes session from the 2010 RightNow Conference, Dr. Tony Evans, Senior Pastor of Oak Cliff Bible Fellowship encourages us to use the power under God’s authority to make His Kingdom known.

As you watch, take notes and write down thoughts about how this message can impact your ministry.
