Gospel Shipmates

 

The ship was an ancient Christian symbol. It was a picture of the church cutting through the sea of disbelief and darkness, the troubled waters of this world, but finally reaching Heaven's safe harbor with the souls of God's redeemed. Question: Which type of ship did early Christians envision the church to be? Did they have a 1st century 'Love Boat' cruise liner in mind or was it a ship of war, a battleship? Mission and mindset make all the difference for the voyage ahead. This was so in the 1st century and holds true today. Make plans to join us Sunday as we explore this important matter!
