What makes the Church? Learn about the unity of the Church, including what is necessary and not necessary for unity, and how the Lutheran doctrine of the Church Gospel-centered. Also hear about how the Holy Spirit works even through evil and faithless people, why this is a good thing to know when we talk about the work of the Church, and why the Roman Catholics rejected the Lutheran doctrine confessed about the Church and what the Church is.
Rev. Peter Ill, pastor of Trinity Lutheran Church in Milstadt, IL, joins host Rev. Sean Smith to discuss the Church and what the Church is in Articles VII and VIII of the Augsburg Confession.
