Jesus declares, "I will build my church and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it" (Matt. 16:18). The church is right at the center of the unfolding of God's grand redemptive plan! How do we stay on track with Christ's purpose and intent for his church?

Look to the Book of Nehemiah! Nehemiah is the story of the building of Jerusalem...and at the same time the story of the spiritual building up of the people of God. This spring semester we'll study the book of Nehemiah with an eye toward how God works to renew us and rebuild his church.  Our prayer is that God would do this renewing work in us at TCBC.
