The Beauty of the Local Church with Rev. Dr. Matthew Everhard – S2 – Ep2
Season 2 Episode 2: The Beauty of the Local Church with Rev. Dr. Matthew Everhard
Introduction to Episode: During episode 2 of season 2, we discuss the beauty of the local church and its purpose. We tackle statements that are thought provoking. We answer questions that most people have, like what does catholic really mean? Is organized religion wrong? What does reformed worship look like? All of these questions are answered in this episode.
Co-Host: Rev. Dr. Matthew Everhard is the Senior Pastor at Faith Church, EPC (Evangelical Presbyterian Church) in Brooksville, Florida. Matthew is married to his wife Kelly and has three children, Soriah, Elijah, and Simone. Matthew is not only a pastor/theologian but a writer and publisher. Matthew is the general editor for the Westminster Society Journal. Matthew’s latest work his the publication of his dissertation on Jonathan Edwards, “A Theology of Joy: Jonathan Edwards and Eternal Happiness in the Holy Trinity”
Podcast Episode Summary: The Church is necessary. Its role and purpose are needed in a world that does not seek the church. We dive into defining the Greek word ecclesia and how the church multiplies God’s sovereign grace. In today’s world, we have people that “worship” Beyonce and the band U2 and call it church. As Rev. Dr. Everhard explains, we are the “the called out ones” and we the church, should never cater to what the people desire in order to get them to come to church.
