Continuing within the Historical Approach to the Doctrine of the Trinity, I work through the what the Bible says is the purpose of the church and our culture using Colossians 1: 16 – 18:
16 For by him all things were created, in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities—all things were created through him and for him. 17 And he is before all things, and in him all things hold together. 18 And he is the head of the body, the church. He is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, that in everything he might be preeminent.
