Because I Love the Organ So Much

CrazyMan2 What makes a church a church?

By Donnie Paschall 

When I say “church” what is the first thing that comes to your mind? For some of us the first thing we think about is a steeple. For others of us the first thing we think of is a group of people gathered together to participate in some type of religious ceremony or a special building with ornate furniture. Depending on who you ask, and what their experience has been with the concept of church, the responses are varied.  But the Bible has another picture in mind when it refers to the church. In fact, this picture is really the only true picture we should have when we think about the word “church”. So what should come to our mind when someone says the word “church”?

The answer, JESUS!  Jesus is what makes the church the church. There are many definitions to describe the church, but if Jesus is not included in that definition all we have is a definition describing a group of people either practicing religion or establishing a social club. In Matthew 16 Jesus told Peter that He would build the church on Himself when he said to Peter, “on this rock I will build my Church.” The “this” Jesus was referring to was the statement of faith Peter made in vs.16 that declared Jesus as the long awaited Messiah who would bring salvation to the world. Jesus is the foundation stone upon which the church is to be built and He is the message we are to proclaim. Saul’s encounter with Jesus on the Damascus road drives home this point even further when we consider that when Jesus confronted Saul about persecuting the church Jesus asked him in Acts 9:4, “Saul, Saul, why are you persecuting Me?” Jesus is making a declaration that His name should be synonymous with the church. He is the foundation we stand on and it is by His Spirit that we have life.

Church is not about style of music, type of dress, type of building, ornate furniture, worship choirs, or even a gathering of people. Church is about JESUS!! It is about loving people like Jesus loved, forgiving people like Jesus forgave, being patient like Jesus when things don’t go our way, and proclaiming salvation like Jesus proclaimed. As we step out to launch Vertical Church we want people to think about one thing when they hear the name Vertical Church – JESUS!. We want to be known for our love and that our love reflected the love of Jesus. We want to be known for our forgiveness and that our forgiveness reflected the forgiveness of Jesus. We want to be known for our message and that our message was consistent with the message of hope that Jesus preached.

What is a church? A church is Jesus. A light that shines brightly in the darkness that all who are bound in that darkness may find the way of everlasting life. 

 By the way… the picture of the dude at the top… he doesn't like my definition of church 

Got something to say? Go for it!
