The Church is Beautiful

I have just wrapped up another week of pastoral ministry in Tegucigalpa, Honduras. I have been teaching and preaching about the Church, and I have been encouraged. While I do believe the Church (especially in the U.S.) is sick, I do not believe she is dead. Quite the contrary! Jesus has promised He will build His Church (in spite of us) and the gates of hell will not defeat her (Matthew 16:18).

I have given my life to the Church. I have been a pastor for 27 years. I am a fourth-generation pastor. The local church is in my blood. I love the Church. I believe the Church is…

…beautiful.

…wonderful.

…the body of Christ.

…the bride of Christ.

…and the hope of the world.

Furthermore, I believe Jesus is returning for His Church, and that He will keep her sanctified and purified until His return. When He returns, the Church will be glorified.

Jesus has already won the victory for the Church. He has promised that nothing will defeat her.

I love the Church.
