The church of Christ has been purchased with the blood of Jesus Himself (Acts 20:28). The church of Christ is also the pillar and ground of truth, for it has no mission but that of doing the work that God has given for it to do (1 Timothy 3:15, John 18:36). That isn't to say that the church won't be among men, because it will; the church began in Jerusalem about 33 AD on the day of Pentecost (Luke 24:46, Acts 1 and 2).
The work of the church isn't to be having dinners, ball games, bingo, car washes, two or more collections; support to colleges and other human institutions, or providing secular courses such as math, reading, computer, etc. Yet we see so much of this and more being done by churches, and people just come to believe that the church can be involved in anything that we choose. However, man must realize that the Bible is to be our guide, and that we must use it in order to prove what we do in religion (1 Peter 4:11, 2 John 8, Matthew 7:24-27, John 8:3). Churches must have authority for all that is done and practiced.
The Bible teaches that the work that Jesus has prescribed for his blood-bought body is to be the care of saints (Acts 11:26-30, Acts 5:32-37). The support of preachers of the gospel (Phillipians 4:14-20, 2 Corinthians 11:8-9). And the local church is to care about the edification of its own spiritual welfare (Acts 20:28, Ephesians 4:11-13). By what authority does your church do what it does? (Mark 11:28).
Hope to hear from you or to see you at the services.
