Overview

The "Glory" of God represents His divine qualities. They are revealed through His beauty, brightness, splendor, and radiance as well as His visible revelation of Himself.

A fundamental belief in God is manifested individually, and corporately, through the local church. The local church represents a gathering place where any number of souls are called together and united in one vow, for divine worship, where the pure Word is preached, Godly living is taught, based upon The Holy Bible, as given by the head of the church - The Lord Jesus Christ. Further, we will discover that the local church serves three primary purposes:
(1) It represents the body of believers who are saved by or because of their relationship with Jesus Christ (Body of Christ),
(2) It is comprised of those who are assembled together by their bounds of habitation (the local church), and
(3) We are the Bride of Christ (the local church is charged to teach its members how to live out the principles contained within the pages of The Holy Bible - God's Word).

Kevin Wayne Johnson continues with his simple and systematic writing style to clearly demonstrate The Power in the Local Church within three parts and nine chapters. Part I - What is the Church? - establishes that the local church is revealed in Matthew 16:18 and cannot be destroyed by anyone who chooses to come against its message or existence. Part II - What is My Role in the Local Church? - examines the critical importance of reconciling others to Christ as His ambassadors (2 Corinthians 5:18-20). These actions are manifested through service to others and understanding our specific roles within the confines of the local church. Part III - How Do I Glorify God by Fulfilling My Role in the Local Church? - is accomplished through our good works, togetherness (unity), and by "staying in your lane" through the twenty spiritual gifts that God gives us to compliment, in lieu of compete, other gifts within the Body of Christ and in the local church.

We are instructed by God's Word to assemble ourselves together (Hebrews 10:24-25) for the purpose of comforting one another, to promote good works, and to demonstrate love and affection to everyone within our sphere of influence. It is through our good works that God is glorified (Matthew 5:16). Then, The Power in the Local Church is personified through us that represent Him in the earth.
