In the New Testament, there are over 100 descriptive ideas and metaphors used to describe the church (bride of Christ, body, people of God, etc.). In your thread, choose 3 ideas/metaphors used to describe the church and explain how each of these terms/metaphors/ideas portrays the mission of the Church in the world. This portion of the thread must be a minimum of 200 words.

There is no shortage of opinions concerning what the church should be doing in the world. Some suggest that it should be completely separated from the world while others adamantly believe that the church should be immersed in the world in order to be the hands and feet of Christ. After completing the required reading and viewing the presentation, write in the same thread (100 word minimum) how you would explain the mission of the church to someone who recently placed his/her faith in Christ.
