Question:

It appears that you are saying that only individuals do things and not the body (church), is this what you mean?

Thank you.


Answer:

It depends on what "things" you are referring to. There are things commanded of the church and there are things commanded of the individual Christian. A few of them overlap, but many of them do not. For example, a Christian is commanded to teach (Matthew 28:19-20), but so is the church (Ephesians 4:11-16). However, an individual is commanded to be baptized (Acts 2:38), but a church cannot be baptized.
