What Is The Church?

First, we must understand that the church is not a thing. It is not a building with a cross on it that people go to on Sunday. The church is a gathering of people. So, the better question is: Who is the church?

Who Is The Church?

The church is an assembly of people, but they are more than just any people. They are people that are born again. They are Christians. They are saints of God. The bible calls these people “the body of Christ". This means they are the visible representation of Christ here on earth. Jesus Christ is the head and the church makes up His body. When the church gathers together, whether it is in a building or in someone’s basement or out under an oak tree; Christ is present with them. Anyone that is not a Christian can assemble with these people but will not be a part of the church. The church is not merely something you just decide to be a part of, but rather it is something you are spiritually born into when you chose to believe with all your heart and confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord.
