“My Vision for the Church”

The Church by definition is "the called out one," the ecclessia. We are the body, the temple, and that mighty army, spoken of in the Word of God. As a local church the Word of the Lord to us has been specific. We are to be a lighthouse in every community. God has called The Local Church to be sign churches. We are to provide in the body, a model patterned after both the Old and the New Testament. I include both testaments because the Bible is one book and what is contained in the old in type should be fulfilled in the new by application.

The church MUST flow in love, and obedience, The Apostle Paul teaches that we should seek the best gifts and encourage their flow. Paul also taught that God has placed in the local body the five fold ministries for the edification (maturing) of the church.

These ministries should be sought and developed in our local body. When flowing in these gifts we will examine their operation, and correct as necessary, in order that we may grow and grow in truth. We must remember that the spirit of the prophet is subject to the prophet.

Jesus also said that we are to be worshipers, and that we are to worship in spirit and in truth.

We must learn the principles of preparation, that our worship will comply with these guidelines. Worship may start in the carnal realm, but must not remain there. David declared that God inhabits (is enthroned in) the praises of His people. In praise we learn to release the presence of God. The Word of God teaches us that in His presence there is fullness of Joy. We know that the Spirit of Jesus dwells in each believer, but we also know that as we release His presence in our worship that there can be and is a manifest presence of the Lord.

We (the church) are the salt of the earth. Salt must be applied to be of any value. Our application should begin in our homes, and workplace. From there, we will reach into our community, and into the world. It is my conviction that God has called every New Testament church, to reach the world for Jesus. Our pattern should not be the Jerusalem Church but the church in Antioch, where the believing community was first called Christians.
