Mere Christianity - by Matthew 

'Who are we? What are we?' 

There seems to be some confusion in the Church, or Body of Christ today over this question! 

 

Are we Baptists or just Christians? Are we Presbyterians or just Christians? The same could be asked of the many different 'brands' of Christianity out there. Through this study of the Gospel according to Matthew, Tim Martin aims to remind his listeners, yet again, what it really means, and entails, to be a Christian!
