            spiritual house to be a holy priesthood, offering spiritual sacrifices

            acceptable to God through Jesus Christ.   1 Peter 2:4-5

We pay certain individuals in our congregation in order that they may dedicate their full efforts to helping to equip the body of Christ here in Collinsville.

            to be evangelists, and some to be pastors and teachers, to prepare God’s

            people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up until

            we all reach unity in the faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God and become
