line Church

Do you take church seriously?

Many professing Christians do not. While they will indeed acknowledge a place for church in their busy lives, it seems that few regard the visible church as the earthly and institutional manifestation of the spiritual kingdom of the Lord Jesus Christ.

If more Christians did take the church seriously, they would not only honor its ministry, oracles, ordinances, and officers; but they would also enable the church to grow through their commitment to and cooperation in the work of ministry.

God calls you to take the church seriously:

For Jesus promised, “I will build my church, and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it…” and proved it by ascending “far above all principality and power and might and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this age but also in that which is to come… to be head over all things to the church, which is his body, the fullness of him who fills all in all.” (Matt. 16:18 and Eph. 2:21-23)
