The Church is God’s creation that came into existence when Christ died on the cross. The Church was birthed…and Scriptures teach Christ purchased the Church with His own blood. Acts 20:28. In the Church the omnipresence of the Holy Spirit allows universal contact between man and God. Universal contact from the Spirit is made through mans belief and trust in Christ. The Church was formed by God after the dividing line from Law given only to Israel became Divine Grace through the presence of the Spirit was given to both Jew and Gentile (today) through faith in Christ. The Church consists of members who are taken out of the unbelieving world and baptized into the body of Christ by the Spirit.
“Israel in the Old Testament was the apple of God’s eye. Today in the New Testament the Church is the apple of God’s eye”.
Membership to God’s Church is not based on social status in the community, material wealth, or anyone’s good deeds. Any sinner can become a member of God’s Church through faith in Christ; and any believer can also lose membership if they depart or err from their faith in Christ. All members of God’s Church are required to have a clean heart and forgiveness of sins found in the death of a Savior. All members of Christ’s body, the Church are holy because God gives them a holy heart when the heart of unholiness is removed by the saving Grace of God. God’s Church is holy because the creator of the Church is holy.
God’s Church does not have a steeple nor does it consist of four walls or stained glass windows. The Church is a Spiritual place of refuge for all believers in Christ – on this side of Heaven. The Church is perfect because Christ, its builder is perfect. Never will Hell, the Devil, or sin, prevail against God’s Church or its members. Being a member of God’s Church is the greatest blessing any man can have on this side of Heaven.
The Church will be Raptured (called up to Heaven) according to the Bible. The Church will escape end time Wrath and Judgment promised to come from an angry God according to the book of Revelation. Get in the Church now while there’s time. All it takes is faith and trust alone in what Christ did at Calvary, where God pardons the sinner and makes him a child of God, morally changed, and born into the Spiritual family the Bible terms as, “the Church”.
