Title: The Church Belongs to Christ!


1
The Church Belongs to Christ!
2
The Church Belongs to Christ Because
  • He built it (Matthew 1618)

3
Matthew 1618
  • And I also say to you that you are Peter, and on
    this rock I will build My church, and the gates
    of Hades shall not prevail against it.
  • Jesus statement, in response to Peters
    confession (vs. 16), You are the Christ, the Son
    of the living God.

4
The Church Belongs to Christ Because
  • He built it (Matthew 1618)
  • He is its foundation
    (1 Corinthians 311)

5
1 Corinthians 311
  • For no other foundation can anyone lay than that
    which is laid, which is Jesus Christ.
  • We build upon the foundation, (by preaching to
    and converting others), but there is no other
    foundation than Christ.
  • So then neither he who plants is anything, nor
    he who waters, but God who gives the increase.
    (vs. 7)

  • He is its chief corner stone
    (Ephesians 219-21)

7
Ephesians 219-21
  • Now, therefore, you are no longer strangers and
    foreigners, but fellow citizens with the saints
    and members of the household of God, 20 having
    been built on the foundation of the apostles and
    prophets, Jesus Christ Himself being the chief
    cornerstone, 21 in whom the whole building, being
    joined together, grows into a holy temple in the
    Lord.

  • And He Himself gave some to be apostles, some
    prophets, some evangelists, and some pastors and
    teachers, 12 for the equipping of the saints for
    the work of ministry, for the edifying of the
    body of Christ, 13 till we all come to the unity
    of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of
    God, to a perfect man, to the measure of the
    stature of the fullness of Christ 15 but,
    speaking the truth in love, may grow up in all
    things into Him who is the head--Christ-- 16 from
    whom the whole body, joined and knit together by
    what every joint supplies, according to the
    effective working by which every part does its
    share, causes growth of the body for the edifying
    of itself in love.

body of Christ) belongs to Him, we

name, submit to His will, and proclaim our
allegiance to Him and Him alone as our Lord and
Savior.
