What is the distinction between the invisible and visible church? Where do you see this distinction in the Bible? What’s the distinction between the church under the law and under the gospel? How do we understand “profess the true religion”? Why are children part of the visible church? How is the church to be understood as the house of God? What about the family of God? Why is there ordinarily no salvation outside of the church? Tune in as Nathan, Shawn, Joel, and Kyle discuss WCF 25.2:
The visible Church, which is also catholic or universal under the gospel (not confined to one nation as before under the law) consists of all those, throughout the world, that profess the true religion, and of their children; and is the kingdom of the Lord Jesus Christ, the house and family of God, out of which there is no ordinary possibility of salvation.
