The Local Church As A Colony Of The Kingdom Of God (Quote)

“The church isn’t an outpost of American society but instead a colony of the kingdom of Christ (Eph. 1:22–23; Phil. 3:20). Christian worship isn’t a routine act of mere civil society, like a parent-teacher association meeting or a union gathering, but instead a gate between the covenant body and the larger gathering of the redeemed of all ages in heaven (Heb. 12:22–24).”

— Russell D. Moore, Dean of the School of Theology at the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary.
