21st century people– including many Christians– are definitely into “causes”. They like causes that make a tangible difference in the world: mentoring, adoption, foster care.

Is it just a community organization with a religious twist– or is it something more? What does the Bible say about the Church, and how have Christians understood it throughout history? ~The Apostles’ Creed, Part 9
