The Church Explained

The Church is not a building that people go to,yet the Church is every believer in Jesus Christ.

When we realize this,

we only need to get together

and we do not need to visit

a congregation to be with

the Church.

Here are some Bible verses describing the Church:

Jesus said on this rock I will build my church and the gates of Hades will not overcome it and that rock is Christ:

Matthew 16:18

And I tell you that you are Peter, and on this rock I will build my church, and the gates of Hades will not overcome it.

1 Corinthians 10:4

And did all drink the same spiritual drink: for they drank of that spiritual Rock that followed them: and that Rock was Christ.

Jesus is the head of the body

which is the Church:

Colossians 1:18

He is the head of the body, the church, as well as the beginning, the firstborn from among the dead, so that he himself may become first in all things. 

We are the body of Christ,

and each of us are members of it:

1 Corinthians 12:27

Now you are the body of Christ, and each of you is a member of it.

The Church then in the Apostles day became stronger and the Holy Spirit encouraged and helped it to grow:

Acts 9:31

The church in Judea, Galilee, and Samaria now had a time of peace and kept on worshiping the Lord. The church became stronger, as the Holy Spirit encouraged it and helped it grow. 

I hope that this clears up any confusion that is floating around about what The Church is.
