Many people wonder, “Who is the Church?”
In Matthew 16, Jesus talks about the Church for the very first time.
The English word “church” is derived from a Greek adjective, kyriakos, which means “the Lord’s” or “belonging to the Lord.” The Church was officially born on the day of Pentecost in Acts. Jesus, however, prophesies about the Church here.
The Church is not a physical building; the Church is every person who has ever believed in Christ as God’s Son and Savior of humanity. Christ is the head of the Church, and we are called to meet together, to support one another, and to help each other in our earthly journey of following Christ and doing his will over ours.
Thus, some people in a church building are not Christians.
We are made for community, and when you embrace community and one another, the burden you bear, as a Christian, will be a lot less.
Find your “Church.” There, you will find love, support, acceptance, and help at every turn.
