Of course, just as there are no perfect Christians in this life, so there are no perfect churches. Even the best churches fall far short of the ideal. Nevertheless, any church can be healthier than it is. Christians should desire and labor to see healthier churches so that God may be glorified in His people.
All followers of Christ are new creations that have been given a new identity as disciples, members of the family of God, servants of God, missionaries proclaiming the gospel, and stewards of God’s economy for His glory and the good of the city.
