Upon this rock I will build My church; and the gates of Hell shall not prevail against it. Matthew 16:18
Any great church is built on these four things. Each begin with the letter B.
The Book – the inspired, infallible Word of God.
The Blood – the shed blood of the Lord Jesus Christ.
The Birth – the new birth.
The Blessed Hope – the coming again of the Lord Jesus Christ.
God tells us in Hebrews 10:25, “Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching.” He wants us to find a Bible-believing church and connect with the people there.
If you’re looking for a church, first find out what stand they take on the Book, the Blood, the Birth, and the Blessed Hope. Or if they take any stand at all. If they don’t believe in these 4 foundational pillars of the faith, saturate that place with your absence. Then look for a church that does.
