TL-9 - The Importance Of Church Order

“Let all things be done decently and in order” (1 Cor. 14:40). Welcome to our study of church order. In this series of topical lessons we will be discussing the nature of God, church order, and various other topics that will encourage us to live faithfully before God and to live in accord with the teaching of the New Testament. We first need to ask, “What is the church?” Too many times we get the idea that the church is the building, or that the church is present only at times when its members are assembled. But in reality the church is the people. In 1 Corinthians 12:27, the apostle Paul said, “You are the body of Christ, and members individually.” What is the church? It is the collective group of the saved (Christians). Acts 7:48-50 tells us that God “does not dwell in temples made with hands, as the prophet says, ‘Heaven is My throne, and earth is My footstool. What house will you build for Me?’ says the Lord, ‘Or what is the place of My rest? Has My hand not made all these things?’”
