Purpose of the Church
In order for a church to fulfill its purpose THE HOLY SPIRIT MUST BE PRESENT.
Christians make up the church. All Christians are called to love and follow Jesus, love God, love people and spread the Good news about salvation in Jesus Christ. Christians are responsible for spreading the love of God. If you dont have the Spirit of God in you. You cant show people the love of Jesus Christ. Church members should not be lazy or cruel. Church members should be serious about living for God and reflect it in their lifestyle and attitude towards others. Christians should be active in their community, reaching out to the sick and the poor with the love of Jesus Christ and the Word of God. Christians should be spreading the good news about Jesus and living under the guidance of the Holy Spirit. When people visit your church they are suppose to experience 2 things. The love of God and Conviction from The Holy Spirit. Church members are responsible for showing people the love of God with their words and with their actions. But Conviction from the Holy Spirit comes from people hearing the Word of God from preaching or scripture and opening their heart to Jesus Christ. Church members should be greeting people with the love of Christ. Church members should be ready to support and encourage people with the Word of God. Church members should be ready to pray for people with the power of the Holy Spirit. Now If a church leader is off track the entire church will be off track. Christian leaders have to make sure they are saying what God has told them to say. Everything Preached should be in line with the Word Of God and the teachings of Jesus Christ. A Christian leader must remain in Christ. And in Christ leaders are servants. Before you can lead others you must first obey God and allow The Lord Jesus Christ to lead you. Today there are to many people who have a desire to lead; but do not have a desire to serve. That is the opposite of what Jesus Christ taught. If a Christian leader is not willing to serve others he or she is not in Christ. The people who hold Leadership positions set the attitude and the spirit of the church. All Christians should serve and worship God in Truth and in Spirit.
