 Concerning the Church 
I believe that the Church is the only institution created by Jesus Christ as the assembly of believers [Matthew 16:18][Matthew 18:17][Acts 20:28], for the people who believe upon Jesus Christ as God's Chosen People [Hosea 1:10][Matthew 21:43][Mark 1:15][Luke 17:20-21]. The Church is united into one body by the power and calling of the Holy Spirit [Ephesians 4:4][Romans 12:5], for the repentance, edification, worship, obedience, and good works, of the believer, and the fullness of their maturing unto Jesus Christ [I Corinthians 12:12][I Corinthians 14:4]. I believe the Church as a local institution should strive to edify the Saints, by preaching, the whole counsel of the Word of God to believers in Jesus Christ [I Corinthians 14:12][Ephesians 4:16]. The Church is likewise commanded to preach the Gospel of Salvation through a belief in Jesus Christ, to the whole world [Matthew 28:19-20]. The Church is given the responcibility to test, and prove leaders among the Christian brotherhood, [Revelation 2:2][I Timothy 3:10] the greatest, shall be the least, and whosoever exalts himself shall be abased. [Matthew 18:4][Luke 14:11] Jesus likewise, condemned the public display of titles within His church, and declared of us all, brethren. [Matthew 23:8-11]

 
 Matthew 16:18 [18] And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.
 
 
 Matthew 18:17 [17] And if he shall neglect to hear them, tell it unto the church: but if he neglect to hear the church, let him be unto thee as an heathen man and a publican.
 
 
 Acts 20:28 [28] Take heed therefore unto yourselves, and to all the flock, over the which the Holy Ghost hath made you overseers, to feed the church of God, which he hath purchased with his own blood.
 
 
 Hosea 1:10 [10] Yet the number of the children of Israel shall be as the sand of the sea, which cannot be measured nor numbered; and it shall come to pass, that in the place where it was said unto them, Ye are not my people, there it shall be said unto them, Ye are the sons of the living God.
 
 
 Matthew 21:43 [43] Therefore say I unto you, The kingdom of God shall be taken from you, and given to a nation bringing forth the fruits thereof.
 
 
 Mark 1:15 [15] And saying, The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand: repent ye, and believe the gospel.
 
 
 Luke 17:20-21 [20] And when he was demanded of the Pharisees, when the kingdom of God should come, he answered them and said, The kingdom of God cometh not with observation: [21] Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you.
 
 
 Ephesians 4:4 [4] There is one body, and one Spirit, even as ye are called in one hope of your calling;
 
 
 Romans 12:5 [5] So we, being many, are one body in Christ, and every one members one of another.
 
 
 I Corinthians 12:12 [12] For as the body is one, and hath many members, and all the members of that one body, being many, are one body: so also is Christ.
 
 
 I Corinthians 14:4 [4] But he that prophesieth speaketh unto men to edification, and exhortation, and comfort.
 
 
 I Corinthians 14:12 [12] Even so ye, forasmuch as ye are zealous of spiritual gifts, seek that ye may excel to the edifying of the church.
 
 
 Ephesians 4:16 [16] From whom the whole body fitly joined together and compacted by that which every joint supplieth, according to the effectual working in the measure of every part, maketh increase of the body unto the edifying of itself in love.
 
 
 Matthew 28:19-20 [19] Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: [20] Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.
 
 
 Revelation 2:2 [2] I know thy works, and thy labour, and thy patience, and how thou canst not bear them which are evil: and thou hast tried them which say they are apostles, and are not, and hast found them liars:
 
 
 I Timothy 3:10 [10] And let these also first be proved; then let them use the office of a deacon, being found blameless.
 
 
 Matthew 18:4 [4] Whosoever therefore shall humble himself as this little child, the same is greatest in the kingdom of heaven.
 
 
 Luke 14:11 [11] For whosoever exalteth himself shall be abased; and he that humbleth himself shall be exalted.
 
 
 Matthew 23:8-11 [8] But be not ye called Rabbi: for one is your Master, even Christ; and all ye are brethren. [9] And call no man your father upon the earth: for one is your Father, which is in heaven. [10] Neither be ye called masters: for one is your Master, even Christ.[11] But he that is greatest among you shall be your servant.
