Now join me tonight in 1 Corinthians chapter 12 as we
continue our series of messages under the heading...

Our Savior... Our Church... Our Future!

As Savior... Jesus is building His Church!

Matthew 16.18, "And I say to you that you are Peter,
and on this rock I will build My church, and the gates
of Hell shall not prevail against it."

Look around! Jesus is building His church! Jesus

We're learning on these Sunday nights more about what
it means to Exalt the Savior!

Colossians 1.18, "And He is the head of the body, the
church, who is the beginning, the firstborn from the
