The Church: Local or Universal? Visible or Invisible?
Using the Bible as the authority for settling the question, Dr. Cross shows that the issue which distinguishes Baptists from Protestants is primarily the nature of the church. After showing that Jesus promised to build His own church, this book presents an examination of the Greek word "ecclesia," showing it to indicate a called-out assembly. There is a brief, interesting discussion of the origin and history of the universal church idea. This little book will be helpful to all who want to serve God as prescribed in His book.
