Discussion Questions For Sermon, The Church As Temple: Its Foundation, 1 Corinthians 3:1–17

The sermon manuscript is available at emmausrbc.org/category/sermons

  • What does the word “church” mean?
  • What is the foundation of God’s eternal temple-church? In what sense are the apostles and prophets a part of the foundation? Who are these apostles and prophets?
  • Buildings depend on their foundations. In what sense does the true church, and all who are members of it, depend on Christ?
  • Buildings must align with their foundations. In what sense must the true church, and all who are members of it, align with Christ?
  • True saving faith involves knowledge, agreement with that knowledge (assent), and trust. If one of these is lacking, faith is not true and saving. Discuss. 
  • If it is true that Christ is the foundation of God’s temple-church, and if it is true that the church, and all who are in it, must depend on Christ and align with him, what are the implications for our doctrine of the church and our practice?
