Building the Church
There is no such thing as planting a church. Jesus told us to build His Church (Mat. 16:18).
1. The church building
We build the Church for the saints. The Church is according to the Bible not a building or a place nor a movement or organization, but a gathering of the followers of Christ. This is not to forbid the entry of unbelievers that might be led by God to visit, but it’s to make it clear that we are not gathering to be presentable or attractive to the world.
