What place does the Old Testament and the Law Play in the life of a Christian?

This is a debate we are having at our Church right now.
Our Minister says we are not under the law but under grace, but that the law is still a pattern for moral purity.
Does the old covenant play a part in our lives today?
Love (for God and our neighbor) is our motivation, but do we learn from the law how to morally please God, and thus learn how to show our Love for God?
Should we throw it all out and only use the new covenant?
If there is on standard, how can we determine who should be a member of our Church? Who is qualified to teach?
Are the 10 commandments of any value?
