The New Testament Church is designed for use in adult, university, and high school Bible classes and for personal study. It describes the biblical passages on the traditional topics pertaining to the church - its origin, nature, membership, life, worship, work, and organization. These topics are placed in the context of Old Testament expectations and the anticipation of heavenly fulfillment. The distinctive approach is to relate the characteristics of the church to its head, Christ. The result presents the practical values of the doctrinal study of Scripture.
