A published pamphlet of one of Earl Davis' sermons. Jesus gathered volunteers who understood and supported the kind of life that Jesus advocated; that is the beginning of the Christian church before institutionalization. Davis discusses the implications for assessing the current value and use of the church. Man is not made for church; church is made for man. The kingdom of God was to be a kingdom on this earth. The church -- then and now -- must serve human personality and reality.
