Sermon About Identifying the lord's Church

 Early church history is important to understand because it set the foundation for Christianity. During this time, the early church focused on preaching the message of Christ's resurrection, founded seminaries, and educated people about their faith. The early church also experienced rapid growth due to its focus on spreading the gospel and its focus on education.

Ephesians 4:12-13 The Mission of the Church

What the mission of the church is:

To serve, protect, and defend God’s Word.

The Mission of the Church

  • Serve Romans 7:4; Eph. 4:12, 15-16; Rom. 12:3-8
  • Protect I Tim. 1:3; 3:15; 6:21; II Tim. 3:14
  • Defend Phil. 1:7, 15-16; 2:15; I Peter 3:15-16

The church focused on preaching the message of Christ's resurrection  that is what they believed.  They first preached this message in Jerusalem during Jesus' lifetime. When he died by crucifixion, he was buried; three days later he was resurrected and appeared to his disciples. To day his belief motivated early Christians to spread their message throughout the world  the Preaching is still a fundamental part of Christian service in many parts of the world today.

One way into the kingdom

John 3:5  Jesus answered, "Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter the kingdom of God.

One way into Christ

Gal 3:26-27  For you are all sons of God through faith in Christ Jesus.  (27)  For as many of you as were baptized into Christ have put on Christ.

Christianity experienced rapid growth during its early years because of its simple message and focus

Healthy teaching means sound doctrine applied to your life.

2 Timothy 1:13.

Hold fast the pattern of sound words which you have heard from me, in faith and love which are in Christ Jesus.

Hebrews 4:12.

For the word of God is living and active and sharper than any two-edged sword, and piercing as far as the division of soul and spirit, of both joints and marrow, and able to judge the thoughts and intentions of the heart.

The healthy church knows they need:

To learn the Word.

Matthew 28:20. “Teaching them to observe all that I commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.”

To learn the Word is to grow in faith.

1 Corinthians 2:4-5. And my message and my preaching were not in persuasive words of wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power, that your faith should not rest on the wisdom of men, but on the power of God.

To learn the Word to be able to teach others.

Hebrews 5:12-14.

For though by this time you ought to be teachers, you have need again for someone to teach you the elementary principles of the oracles of God, and you have come to need milk and not solid food.
