Lesson 13 - The Church (Part 2)

Introduction

There are thousands of different denominations in the world. But the Bible reveals only one church. Let us learn from the Bible about Christ’s church. Let us become members of it. Then, we can know we are right. The Bible tells is what Christ’s church is like. It tells us its names, organization, and worship.

The Names of the Church

The Bible gives several names for Christ’s church and for its members. These names honor God and His Son, Jesus Christ.

The Organization of the Church

God’s plan for His church is very simple.

Not everyone can be an elder or a deacon. One must be a good man before he can do this work. The qualifications for elders are found in 1 Timothy 3:1-7 and Titus 1:5-10. The qualifications for deacons are stated in 1 Timothy 3:8-13. No one can serve as an elder or deacon unless he meets God’s qualifications. No church can have elders or deacons until they have men who meet these qualifications.

The Worship of the Church

God has shown us in the Bible what we are to do to worship Him
