SUNDAY!!

Justin Martyr“We assemble together on Sunday, because it is the first day; on which God transformed darkness and matter, and made the world; and Jesus Christ our Savior rose from the dead on that day; for they crucified him the day before Saturday; and the day after Saturday, which is Sunday, he appeared to his apostles and disciples, and taught them these things which we have presented to you also for your consideration.”

–Justin Martyr First Apology, 67.

“Christian worship as a means of edification, communion, and witness of the body of Christ is best observed on Sunday, providing reminder that this is the first day, the day of Resurrection, the day of gathering, and the Lord’s Day which reminds us to anticipate the coming parousia. We believe that our Baptist ecclesiology is in much need of strengthening at these points, but it is these points as well that offer opportunity for just such strengthening to occur.”
