The Church


Ephesians 1:22-23. It states; God has put all things under the authority of Christ and has made him head over all things for the benefit of the church. And the church is his body; it is made full and complete by Christ, who fills all things everywhere with himself.

1 Peter 2:5  NLT states: And you are living stones that God is building into his spiritual temple. What’s more, you are his holy priests. Through the mediation of Jesus Christ, you offer spiritual sacrifices that please God.

The original Greek translation of the word Church means the called out ones. The English version means “dedicated to the Lord. Commonly used to refer to a holy place or temple, it typically implies a sacred building or temple.

Hebrews 10:25:

And let us not neglect our meeting together, as some people do, but encourage one another, especially now that the day of his return is drawing near.

Romans 12:5: states:

So we, being many, are one body in Christ, and every one members one of another.

Ephesians 2:21 We are carefully joined together in him, becoming a holy temple for the Lord. Through him you Gentiles are also being made part of this dwelling where God lives by his Spirit.

The Bible confirms that we are the church.

Ephesians 4:11-13 further explains: Now these are the gifts Christ gave to the church: the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, and the pastors and teachers. Their responsibility is to equip God’s people to do his work and build up the church, the body of Christ.

This will continue until we all come to such unity in our faith and knowledge of God’s Son that we will be mature in the Lord, measuring up to the full and complete standard of Christ. In reality, the saved or the “called out” come together in a collective gathering at an appointed time and place.

Saints are ministered to through singing, praising, and teachings.

The Church building is where Christians assemble to receive in depth knowledge from chosen minister/teachers of the Lord. Take your time to choose what church you should attend, for there are many false prophets out there. However, do not let them stop you from gathering. God has a special plan for them. They must answer to God for such behavior. We are not the judge.
