JESUS BUILDS HIS CHURCH
By Rev. Dr. Jerry Schmoyer firstname.lastname@example.org
Matthew 16:18 And I tell you that you are Peter, and on this rock I will build my church, and the gates of Hades will not overcome it.
ON THIS ROCK
Jesus: “Who do you think I am?”
Peter: “ You are the Christ, the Son of the Living God.”
= FAITH IN JESUS AS GOD COME TO EARTH to pay for sin
Jesus, God and Man, foundation of us, church
Church not built on pastor, program, music, etc.
I … MY HIS church, not mine, Moses’
All about Him, not us!
I WILL promise, certainty, no doubt about it
Been doing it for 2000 yrs, until returns
BUILD = grow spiritually:
know Bible, pray, faith stronger, holy
Size not #1 – don’t know size of NT churches
-“feed my sheep” (Jn 21:15-17)
-“Go, make disciples..” (Mt 28:19)
Church must be growing spiritually
All believes in church, including pastors, growing
NOT OVERCOME Satan not overcome
Attacks much, but not victorious and never will be!
China, Africa, India
Satanists in New Hope – praying against us, still here
