Now you are the body of Christ and individually members of it.
Jesus died to pay our sin debt and those who believe in Him become part of God’s family. The church is the body of Christ, or God’s family. Every person who repents and believe in Jesus, becomes part of that family. The people in God’s family are spiritual brothers and sisters.
God Is Redeemer – God Gives Church
God does not just save us from eternal punishment, but also redeems us. The word redemption means to buy back. This means that God sets us free from the slavery of sin through the death of His Son. God is not just redeeming us as individuals though, but He instead is redeeming a people, His church. The church is the collection of believers both universal (Christians everywhere) and local (Christians who meet together locally). God has set apart His people to declare His praises.
