Message
2
The Jesus Built Church
Jesus is in the Church building business
Jesus said ------------
  • -----I will build My church, and the gates of
    Hades shall not prevail against it.
  • Matthew 1618

Building the Church is not building a building
People build buildings Jesus Christ builds the
Church
3
The Church is the Body of Christ which Jesus
Christ is the Head of!
  • The Head
  • The Body

And he is the head of the body, the church
------ (Colossians 1218)
The Head gives directions and the Body follows
the directions
4
The Head of the Church
Position and Responsibility
  • Only One (1) Head Jesus Christ
  • Gives direction to the Body
  • Builds the Church (body)

5
The Body of Christ is the Church
Position and Responsibility
  • Continue the Work of Christ in the earth!
  • Follow the directions of the Head!
  • As laid out in scripture
  • As led by the Holy Spirit which will be in line
    with the written scriptures.

6
The Jesus Built Church has a Two Fold
Responsibility
THE BODY AND THE HEAD WORKING TOGETHER
  1. The Head (Jesus) builds the Church (Matthew
    1618)
  2. The Body (Church) plants, waters, grows and
    edifies itself in love (1Corinthians 367)
    (Ephesians 416)

7
The Jesus Built Church is to exercise authority
in the earth!
Jesus is the Church Builder
Jesus exercises His authority in the earth
through the Church to carry on the work of the
Church!
  • And I will give you the keys of the kingdom of
    heaven, and whatever you bind on earth will be
    bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth
    will be loosed in heaven.
  • Matthew 1619

Binding (forbidding) and Loosing (permitting)
Matthew 2818 says --- All authority has been
given in Me in heaven and on earth.
Here he begins the transfer of authority
8
Three Concepts to consider - we must understand
the differences
BEING GOING - BUILDING
  • Being the Church!
  • Going to Church!
  • Building the Church

They are not the same
Understand who is responsible and take
responsibility for your part as one of the Body
parts
People can build building without Jesus BUT Jesus
will not build The Church without people!
9
Being the Church
Not just going to Church but Being the Church
  • Who Christians are
  • Doing what Jesus said to do

The Head gives directions and the Body follows
directions
10
Two Primary ways to be the Church
  • Accept Jesus as your savior
  • A one time experience
  • Make Jesus Lord of your life
  • A life long journey

11
Going to Church
Not just going to Church but being the Church
  • The Universal Church
  • All Born again Christians on planet earth
  • All the local Churches
  • The Local Church
  • Christians who meet together in a local area
  • Not a building but the people who meet in the
    building
  • The local Church is the people not the building

Going to Church is going to meet with Gods people
12
Build The Church
Jesus is the one who Builds to the Church
  • Jesus commissioned the Church
  • Jesus adds to the Church
  • Jesus gives direction to the Church

The Head gives directions and the Body follows
directions
NOW! This is the Jesus Built Church
13
Basic understandings of The Church
  1. Who is the Church?
  2. Where is the Church?
  3. What is the Purpose of the Church?

14
Who is The Church?
The Body of Christ
  • Made up of many parts
  • Many parts with different functions

Team Work is The Key!
15
Where is The Church?
Planet Earth
  • Not a building
  • Where Christians are

Christians meeting together is not an option but
a requirement!
16
What is the purpose of The Church?
Establish The Kingdom of God in Planet Earth
  • Establish The Kingdom of God
  • Occupy until Jesus Christ returns

17
The Key to what the Church is to be doing is
found in what I call -----
  • Forty (40) days of instruction
  • The obedience of the 120
  • The suddenly in the Upper Room
  • Changed and empowered men changing their world

18
What Jesus said after His resurrection before His
ascension gives us a foundational understanding
of what the Church is supposed to be doing
19
Transfer of Authority to The Church
  • Matthew 419
  • Matthew 2818-20
  • Mark 1615-20
  • Luke 2449
  • John 2022
  • Acts 18
  • Acts 21-4
  • Acts 214 But Peter standing up with the
    eleven, raised his voice --------

20
Conclusion
  • Life Applications
  • Call to commitment
  • Minister as the Holy Spirit leads

21
A Healthy Church should be made up of Four
categories of people
  • Thinkers
  • Movers
  • Servers
  • Shakers

TEAM WORK!
When they get together something really great can
happens!
