Owasso Campus - First Baptist Church

We exist to love all people to Christ and equip them on their journey with God and one another. We believe Jesus Christ is the hope of the world and the church is His plan for sharing that hope with the world. Every week, from the Owasso Campus, we explore the Word of God to strengthen our faith, draw near to Him, and deepen our love for one another.



episode 11: Membership Matters

Chris Wall • 1 Corinthians 12:12-27


When Jesus established the church, he was not launching a building campaign. He was not describing an organization. He was not starting a business. He was describing an unstoppable force that he would personally build until the end of humanity. The gathered church is the body of Christ and this body fleshes itself out in a local context. Our congregation operates under the Lordship of Christ through an established process of self-governance. In our congregation, each member is responsible and accountable to Christ as Lord. Our scriptural officers are elders and deacons. In this passage, the church is identified as the body of Christ which includes all of the redeemed of all ages.
