What is the church? (Jeff Vanderstelt’s answer)

Jeff Vanderstelt: The church is the gospel people who believe the gospel, who are a formed community around the gospel, and who demonstrate the gospel in everyday ways of life so that the world might know that the Father sent the Son.  (This doesn’t sound like the reformed view of the church, but the marks are included in the this definition of the function of the church).
