Just what is CHURCH?

CHURCH life is a gathered community of believers that live by the divine life of Jesus and is naturally produced by members who have encountered Jesus Christ in reality. Church life is born from and is sustained by the spiritual life of Christ lived through believers (His body).

CHURCH is a far cry from buildings that house human institutions, controlled by human ideologies under a hierarchy of the spiritual elite, shaped by man-made constitutions and lifeless rituals of do’s and don’ts that is held together by religious programs to keep the denominational wheels in motion.

Consider the words of John Wesley: "Would to God that all party names, and un-scriptural phrases and forms which have divided the Christian world, were forgot…that the very name (Methodist, dm) might never be mentioned more, but be buried in eternal oblivion" (Universal Knowledge, Vol. 9, pg. 540).

Also the words of Charles Spurgeon: "I look forward with pleasure to the day when there will not be a Baptist living! I hope that the Baptist name will soon perish, but let Christ's name last forever" (Spurgeon Memorial Library, Vol. 1, pg. 168).
