LESSON 24: THE CHURCH OF THE N. T. “Church” -from Greek word EKKLESIA that LESSON 24: THE CHURCH OF THE N. T. “Church” -from Greek word EKKLESIA that means “A called out body” “The Church” is strictly a New Testament (N. T. ) concept of religion In the N. T. Jesus Christ Said… I WILL build my EKKLESIA ( i. e. Church) Mat 16: 18 How are the members of the body “called out”? Not everyone responds to the CALL of the Gospel (Matt 22: 14 Through the GOSPEL of Christ (2 Thes 2: 13 -14, 1 Cor 1: 24, 26) The “called” are SAVED & ADDED to the church (Act 2: 47) The calling is according to His PURPOSE (Rom 8: 28, 1 Tim 1: 9)

OWNERSHIP OF THE CHURCH Jesus Christ is the Owner…”I will Build my Church” (Mat OWNERSHIP OF THE CHURCH Jesus Christ is the Owner…”I will Build my Church” (Mat 16: 18) He is the Head (Ruler, King, etc) of the Church (Acts 5: 23) He bought the Church with His own Blood (Acts 20: 28) He is the SAVIOR of the Church (Eph 5: 25) The Church hears only his voice (doctrine or Teaching) [John 10: 1 -16]

THE CHURCH IS… 1. The BODY of Jesus Christ (Eph 1: 20 -23) & THE CHURCH IS… 1. The BODY of Jesus Christ (Eph 1: 20 -23) & He being the HEAD 2. The House of God & Bearer of Truth (1 Tim 3: 15) 3. The Kingdom of God (Col 1: 10 -23, 4: 11, 1 Cor 15: 24, Rev 1: 6 ) 4. The Bride of Jesus Christ (Rev 21: 2&9, 22: 17)

ONENESS OF THE CHURCH… Jesus Christ & the Church are ONE, cannot separate them ONENESS OF THE CHURCH… Jesus Christ & the Church are ONE, cannot separate them (Acts 9: 2 -6) Jesus Christ has ONE BODY (i. e. Church) (Eph 4: 4) The Church is set up locally due to Geographical reasons (e. g. church in Corinth, Ephesus, etc) not due to differences in doctrine

THE CHURCH IS NOT… 1. A Physical Building 2. A Denomination A building is THE CHURCH IS NOT… 1. A Physical Building 2. A Denomination A building is merely an area where the Church assembles But it’s a group of SAVED people (men & women) [Act 9: 2] A true church of Christ, CANNOT organise itself into groups that have different NAMES & DOCTRINES of Men (1 Cor 1: 10 -27) And those who do as such are NOT of Christ/GOD (Mat 7: 21 -23, Mat 13: 24 -30) A building does not feel fear or get persecuted but people (Act 5: 11, 8: 11) The Church was given ONE name…Christ (Act 4: 12) The Church follows the Doctrine of Christ only (1 Pet 4: 11)

LESSON 25: WORK & WORSHIP OF THE CHURCH In the N. T. , WORK/FUNCTION LESSON 25: WORK & WORSHIP OF THE CHURCH In the N. T. , WORK/FUNCTION of the church is divided into 3 phases 1. Evangelization 2. Edification The Gospel of Christ to be preached to the whole world (all nations) (Mat 28: 19, Col 1: 23, Rom 10: 18 Those who are saved are to be taught/edified (Mat 28: 20) for the building up of the Church (Rom 14: 19, 1 Cor 14: 26, 2 Cor 12: 19 The wisdom & truth of God is to be made known to all by the Church (Eph 3: 8 -10, 1 Tim 3: 15) Purpose of edifying the Church (Eph 4: 10 -13) • Attain Unity & Knowledge of Christ • Unto perfect (mature) man 3. Glorification Those who are in the Church are to “BEAR much Fruit (John 15: 8), Fruit of the SPIRIT (Gal 5: 22 -23) & do Good Works (Mat 5: 16). All are done to GLORIFY GOD The Church also Glorifies God through WORSHIP & God is PRAISED (Acts 2: 42 -47)

CHRISTIAN WORSHIP AS PRACTICED BY THE CHURCH IN THE N. T. The Church assembles CHRISTIAN WORSHIP AS PRACTICED BY THE CHURCH IN THE N. T. The Church assembles regularly to WORSHIP God & Edify each other (not only on the 1 st day the week) [Acts 2: 42 -27, Heb 10: 25] through… Teaching & Listening to the TEACHINGS of Christ & Apostles (Acts 2: 42, 20: 7) Fellowship (sharing) with one another (Acts 2: 42 & 44, 1 John 1: 7) Praying (Acts 2: 42, 4: 23 -31) Partaking of the Lord’s Supper (Sunday only) (Acts 2: 42, 20: 7, 1 Cor 11: 17 -23) Singing (No Instruments, but voices) (Eph 5: 19 -20, Col 3: 16) Giving (Acts 2: 45, 1 Cor 16: 12, II Cor 9: 6 -8)

LESSON 26: GOVERNMENT OF THE CHURCH Christ ordained/appointed these Leaders & Ministers (Eph 4: LESSON 26: GOVERNMENT OF THE CHURCH Christ ordained/appointed these Leaders & Ministers (Eph 4: 10 -11) in the Church to… • Govern as STEWARDS or SERVANTS not Owners (Act 20: 28, 1 Pet 4: 10) • Be FUNCTIONS (as of the body, see 1 Cor 12 & Rom 12: 4 -8) not for Positions, Hierarchy, Power, etc. , as all members are equal (all are kings, priests, servants, saints, brethren, etc [1 Pet 2: 9, 1 Pet 4: 10] Purpose: Eph 4: 11 -16 -Perfecting of saints unto ministering works -Building up (edification) of the Church -For all to attain unity & knowledge of Jesus Christ (other words to be like Christ)

MINISTERS IN THE CHURCHES OF CHRIST EXISTING UNTIL TODAY/END OF Must be qualified TIME MINISTERS IN THE CHURCHES OF CHRIST EXISTING UNTIL TODAY/END OF Must be qualified TIME Elders/Oversees/ Pastors/Bishops Evangelist/ Preachers Deacons Function as Shepherds or Leaders and they Teach in the church (Acts 20: 28, Heb 13: 17, 1 Pet 5: 1 -5) Function as proclaimers of the Gospel of Christ & God’s Truth in the Church & the world -They are responsible in the TRAINING of all church members incl potential elders before they are appointed (Titus 1: 5, 1 Tim 5: 19 -21) Function as ministers/”servants” especially for physical needs of the Church, e. g. Managers of finances, benevolence, church building, etc (Acts 6: 1 -5) Men (I Tim 3: 1 -7 & Titus 1) Therefore young men CANNOT be Pastors, elders must be old enough with children who have been baptised & are strong/ committed believers Must be qualified Men & Serve under Elders (2 Tim 4: 1 -5) Preferable preachers must be full-time, as they train members at their homes & meetings & Preach to the world Must be qualified Men & Serve under Elders (1 Tim 3: 8 -13)

URGENCY & NECESSITY OF HAVING ALL THESE MINISTERS Jesus Christ did not say that URGENCY & NECESSITY OF HAVING ALL THESE MINISTERS Jesus Christ did not say that some of these ministries are OPTIONAL, but all are required in the church because they serve a specific function (Paul even saw the necessity & urgency see Titus 1: 5) If the church continues ignoring some of the ministries especially Leadership (Elders, Deacons & Full-time ministers) the church WILL NOT GROW but will regress, can a body grow without a head? Newly established Churches MUST therefore plan & work hard (Vision & Mission minded) through prayers, fasting & teaching to ensure that a church fulfils Eph 4: 11 -16
