Here’s this week’s QOTD post…

What do you believe constitutes a New Testament Church today…?

No fighting. Be respectful of others. Back your thoughts with Scripture! :]

  1. Simply, those who not only read the Bible, proclaim the truth of Jesus Christ as the risen Son of God and Savior of the world, and throw a great potluck, but also love God by loving people. All people.

    • LOL @ “throw a great potluck.” Super typical of Baptist churches, for sure. In some cases, fried chicken is considered the main course in the Marriage Supper of the Lamb! :]

  2. A church that loves God with all its heart, mind, soul, and strength; and a church that loves (and helps) its neighbors as much as it loves itself, and as much as Jesus loves it. A church where you can just “feel” the love, joy, and peace.

  3. Acts 2:41-42: What is interesting is those who were added to the church. They were saved (“received his word”) and baptized. There is no doubt that salvation and baptism is a prerequisite to joining a local church.

    The church then continued in four areas:
    ~Doctrine (beliefs & teachings)
    ~Fellowship (partnership in the things of God)
    ~Breaking of Bread (communion together)
    ~Prayers (communion with God)

    I believe that a local church is made up of believers, who have been baptized, and have joined themselves together (Acts 9:26) in Jesus Christ and His teachings for the purpose of God’s glory and doing God’s work (the Great Commission, Matthew 28:18-20) on the earth – which involves continuing in doctrine, fellowship, breaking of bread, and prayers.
