Thanks for the encouragement. I feel compelled to answer now even though I do not know. I would think without worship and the sharing of spiritual gifts with other pilgrims on their journey to the Celestial City are the primary elements of a church. Secondary include all other, including evangelism, visitation, programs, etc. A church can be a church without evangelism, though a disobedient one. Evangelism and visitation should be believers reaching out of a church, not the identity of it. But without worship and the fellowship of believers, it cannot be a church no matter how much evangelism goes on. I will hasten to add that there are more than two marks of a New Testament church, but the above two I feel are key.

I'd think the main thing is discipling, teaching so that others could go and tell and reach so that they in turn could disciple and teach. The church is first to care for its own and by the love we show one another we will exemplify Christ. It is imperative that we care for each other. selahV

PERSONAL OPINION

  • IN MY HUMBLE OPINION
    An opinion is something we own as ours. What we feel necessary to state publicly could become another's opinion as well. It would be good to consider how much truth is at the core of one's opinion before voicing it. Are we willing to take the time to dig to that depth before we adopt another's opinion as our own? selahV
