How to form a Church

What is the church? Is the church a building? Is it the place where believers gather to worship? Or is the church the people—the believers who follow Christ? How we understand and perceive the church is quite important in determining how we live out our faith.

The Church in the New Testament

For the purpose of this study, we will look at the idea of "the church" in the context of "the Christian church," which is a New Testament concept. One big question that is demanding a answer is, Is temple were Jesus was found teaching and answering questions from the elders, teachers and even laws not a church building?
Jesus was the first to mention the church:

Matthew 16:16–18
Simon Peter replied, “You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.” And Jesus answered him, “Blessed are you, Simon Bar-Jonah! For flesh and blood has not revealed this to you, but my Father who is in heaven. And I tell you, you are Peter, and on this rock I will build my church, and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it. (ESV)
Some Christian denominations, such as the Catholic Church, interpret this verse to mean that Peter is the rock upon which the church was founded, and for this reason, Peter is considered the first Pope. However, Protestants as well as other Christian denominations understand this verse differently. Though many believe Jesus noted the meaning of Peter's name here as rock, there was no supremacy given to him by Christ. Rather, Jesus was referring to Peter's declaration: "You are the Christ, the Son of the living God." This confession of faith is the rock upon which the church is built, and just like Peter, everyone who confesses Jesus Christ as Lord is a part of the church.

New Testament Definition of the Church

The word "church" as rendered in the New Testament comes from the Greek term ekklesia which is formed from two Greek words meaning "an assembly" and "to call out" or "called out ones." In summary, the New Testament church is a body of believers who have been called out from the world by God to live as his people under the authority of Jesus Christ (Ephesians 1:22-23). This group of believers or "the body of Christ" began in Acts 2 on the Day of Pentecost through the work of the Holy Spirit and will continue to be formed until the day of the rapture of the church.
  1. Religious building: a building for public worship, especially in the Christian religion
  2. Religion's followers as a group: all the followers of a religion, especially the Christian religion, considered collectively.
  3. Religious service: a religious service that takes place in a church Synonyms: ecclesiastical, clerical, religious, priestly, apostolic, and papal.
Purpose of a church is to worship God in those good days, but today people attend church for the sake of miracle and not salvation. This by implication is that, Church today has turned into money making venture where miracle seekers attend for the sake of miracle while leaders e.g. Reverends. Fathers, Pastors, Teachers, Prophets or whatever name the group may call theirs are there to make money, by performing those miracles for their victims. Although we are not saying that all are performing the miracles through gods power. Some powers are from God while most come from gods.
