The Local Church’s Purpose and Its Money

Passage: John 2:13-17
Service Type:
  • Speaker: Bryant Bailles
  • Summary: Local churches commonly ignore God’s instructions for how a local church’s money ought to be handled. In this lesson, we first consider Jesus’ example in driving out people who turned the temple into a place of business, and then how His example equips us to see the importance of knowing and following God’s instructions for how a local church is to collect for and use its treasury.
