Is the church important?
The Bible speaks of but one church, the church of Christ (Ephesians 4:4; Colossians 1:18).Christ has promised to save His church at the Last Day (Ephesians 5:23). No salvation is promised to those out of Christ but instead they “shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord, and from the glory of his power” (2 Thessalonians 1:7-9). Jesus died for the church (Ephesians 5:25). Since the church was important to Jesus, it should be important to us too.
