Chuck Swindoll's

Living Portraits of the Church

We need one another . . . even if we don’t always want to admit it. Human beings were made to thrive in relationships—with God and with people. And yet we are often tempted to ignore God’s unique communal design for those who follow Christ: the church.

But what is the church, and what is our place in it? The Bible uses a variety of metaphors to describe Christ’s church. In this series Chuck Swindoll explains four of those metaphors: a growing family, a dependent flock, a functioning body, and the branches of a flourishing vine. This series will help take us beyond understanding how God desires us to be in community. It will show us how it can happen.
