The Church is a who, not a what; a mystery of personhood, and not a mere institution. To be a member of the Church is to be a member of Christ, to be united with the one who died and rose for the salvation of all. Because this is a personal union and a corporate one, it involves our whole lives: how we are with ourselves, with God, and with one another. What we discover with the Church is the way that our whole lives can have one genuine purpose: to worship the God who set us free.
