“On this rock, I will build My church, and the gates of Hades shall not prevail against it.”
Any great church is built on these four things that begin with the letter B:
The Book—the inspired, error-free Word of God.
The Blood—the shed blood of Jesus Christ.
The Birth—the new birth of a new Christian.
The Blessed Hope—the coming again of the Lord Jesus Christ.
God tells us in Hebrews 10:25, “Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as is the manner of some, but exhorting one another, and so much the more as you see the day approaching.” He wants us to find a Bible-believing church and connect with the people there.
If you’re looking at a church, find out if it takes a stand on the Book, the Blood, the Birth, and the Blessed Hope. If it doesn’t, saturate that place with your absence. Look for one that does.
