Jesus Promise to Build His Church

Part 1: Jesus Promised to Build His Church!

John - 17:11
Holy Father, keep them in your name, which you have given me, that they may be one, even as we are one.

Jesus is building His Church!

2 connerstone

Jesus made a promise and declaration, that He will build His church, and that not even the powers of Hell can stop Him!


 

Matthew 16:18
And I tell you, you are Peter, and on this rock "I will Build My Church", and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.

He is building His church!

The question is, "Are you part of His Church?"


As a result of there being hundreds or thousands of denominations in this day and age, there is much confusion about what the "One True Church," really is.

3 dont miss out

If you have a faith relationship with Jesus Christ, (that is to say, the true Jesus of the Scriptures), you are already a member of His Church, which is the One True Church.

However, it is very common for a person to be a member of His Church and still miss out on experiencing it, the way that God designed.


The Scriptures are clear and simple, about His Church:

1. First, how to become a member of His Church.

2. Then, how you are to function as a part of the Body of Christ.

3. Also, where we meet, and what we are to do when we gather together.

4. In addition to that, Understanding How Important You Are, in the Body of Christ.

5. Finally, knowing how to get along with other members.

Next is a chart of the major denominational divisions in Christianity.

Jesus is building His Church!

When you receive Jesus, and believe in His name, He gives you the right to become a child of God!

John 1:9-13
9
The true light, which gives light to everyone, was coming into the world.
10
He was in the world, and the world was made through him, yet the world did not know him.
11
He came to his own, and his own people did not receive him.
12
But to all who did receive him, who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God,
13
who were born, not of blood nor of the will of the flesh nor of the will of man, but of God.

Jesus said, that unless you are "Born Again" you cannot "Enter, or even See the Kingdom of God!"

John 3:1-7
1
Now there was a man of the Pharisees named Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews.
2
This man came to Jesus by night and said to him, “Rabbi, we know that you are a teacher come from God, for no one can do these signs that you do unless God is with him.”
3
Jesus answered him, “Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born again he cannot see the kingdom of God.”
4
Nicodemus said to him, “How can a man be born when he is old? Can he enter a second time into his mother's womb and be born?”
5
Jesus answered, “Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter the kingdom of God.
6
That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.
7
Do not marvel that I said to you, ‘You must be born again.’

7 born again

Jesus said to Nicodemus, an old man who was a religious teacher of the Jews, that everyone must be born again to enter the Kingdom of God!

The question is, "Have you been Born Again?"

Jesus also says that you must "Confess Him, before Men!"

Matthew 10:32-33

So everyone who acknowledges me before men, I also will acknowledge before my Father who is in heaven,
33
but whoever denies me before men, I also will deny before my Father who is in heaven.

Following Jesus has a cost.

9 confess jesus

The question is, "Have you confessed, or denied Jesus, before men?"

His Church is one big family; that is, "The Family of God!"

Romans 8:14-17
14
For all who are led by the Spirit of God are sons of God.
15
For you did not receive the spirit of slavery to fall back into fear, but you have received the Spirit of adoption as sons, by whom we cry, “Abba! Father!”
16
The Spirit himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God,
17
and if children, then heirs—heirs of God and fellow heirs with Christ, provided we suffer with him in order that we may also be glorified with him.

The Scriptures never refer to the church as a place, or a building, or a human institution.10 family

If you are, you are part of His Church!
