Dr. Charles Stanley

Christ: The Head of the Church

00:00 :20

When some people join a church, they become lifelong, active members. Others, however, start out excited but fall away over time. And still others never get involved, somehow content to sit on the sidelines. In this message, Dr. Stanley talks about why we fail to recognize Jesus’ leadership in the church and end up losing interest in serving Him from within a local body of believers. He also dispels the myth that salvation is automatically obtained through church membership.
