The message of Ephesians gives us a picture of God’s desire for His People, the Church.
Though we search for satisfaction and belonging in our surroundings, the book of Ephesians shows us that true fulfillment is only found within the Church. God designed the Church to be the sphere in which the purpose of our lives is realized, the model of unity and diversity in communion, and the courier of lasting hope in the midst of suffering.
The Church is a community of people who receive and display the grace of God, calling everyone to embrace the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
