The church is an institution that constitute of people who gather in the building to express our faith and joy in worshiping our Lord and savior Jesus Christ our God.
The word of God will grow in our heart if we consistently read the bible, listen to the preaching and express what we have heard and read in our actions without minding the action of the preacher or friends, for every man will bear his cross on the judgement day.
The church belong to God only and not to any individual, for all of us are servant.
For the founder of the church is Jesus and if anybody who claim to have found the church is comparable to King Herod who wants to take Gods glory.
The church is universal and comprehensive for all race and language for the poor and rich.
For a pastor is a servant and follower of Jesus Christ who is the founder of the church so also a member of a church is a servant and follower , by both joining hand to serve and reach out to people the church of God will grow, and the Lord Jesus Christ will take the glory and be pleased by the actions of the servants. Which on his own time , he will reward his servant immensely in riches and glory.
Is a shame when an individual claim credit for the growth of the church and use the church to elevate himself in glory and riches.
While the congregation who contribute in service and material wealth is subjected to the glory of the servant of the Lord ( Pastor )
