The Church: Why We Gather

10.14.18 - We Gather to Grow!

The Word of God creates. It creates the cosmos, but it also creates a people. The church is God's new creation people brought to life by the Word. Like all of God's creation, the church is intended to glorify God! We do this as we gather together regularly to stir up one another to love and good works toward Christlikeness (Hebrews 10:24-25). The church is God's means of growing His people in Christlikeness. The church is inhabited by the Holy Spirit. The church gathers around the Word. Within the local church we have three resources from God for growing His people-the Word, the People, and the Spirit! The gathered body is where these three resources are active! To neglect or reject the church is to spurn these resources, these gifts! It is my prayer that all of us would love the church like Jesus, for as Paul tells us in Ephesians 5:25: Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her.
