"This mystery is great, but I speak with regard to Christ and the church.'' (Ephesians 5:32)
Ephesians 5:32, shows us that there is a great mystery in the universe—Christ and the church. In the Bible a number of mysteries are mentioned, but only this mystery, the mystery of Christ and the church, is a great mystery.
As the church in Manalapan we desire, each day, to realize and enjoy Christ and the church as our complete experience; and it is our joy and endeavor to help bring others into that same realization and enjoyment. If you don’t know the Lord personally but would like to know more, we invite you to join us. If you are a dear believer already and would like to continue in your Christian life and to know the church life, we invite you to join us.
