God's church as described in the Holy Bible

Church defined by the Bible are the believers, not the building




2 Corinthians 6 (KJV)
16 And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people.

So when someone tries to guilt you out for not coming to service, don't pay any attention to it. Fellowship with the believers is very important. Church can happen in your own home. Break bread with your brothers and in sisters in Christ beyond man made temples. For we are the temples of the living God.God dwells in us and walks with us every time and every where. ~ Karmen




Acts 17 (KJV)
24 God that made the world and all things therein, seeing that he is Lord of heaven and earth, dwelleth not in temples made with hands; 25 Neither is worshipped with men's hands, as though he needed any thing, seeing he giveth to all life, and breath, and all things;

God is in Heaven. He does not dwell in church buildings. If you are baptized and are practicing holiness and righteousness, his Holy Spirit lives in you. ~ Karmen






1 Corinthians 3 (KJV)
16 Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you? 17 If any man defile the temple of God, him shall God destroy; for the temple of God is holy, which temple ye are. 18 Let no man deceive himself. If any man among you seemeth to be wise in this world, let him become a fool, that he may be wise. 19 For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God. For it is written, He taketh the wise in their own craftiness.


1 Corinthians 12 (KJV)
12 For as the body is one, and hath many members, and all the members of that one body, being many, are one body: so also is Christ.
13 For by one Spirit are we all baptized into one body, whether we be Jews or Gentiles, whether we be bond or free; and have been all made to drink into one Spirit. 14 For the body is not one member, but many.




Ephesians 5 (KJV)
22 Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord.  
23 For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is the saviour of the body.  
24 Therefore as the church is subject unto Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands in every thing.  
25 Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it;




Acts 2 (KJV)
47 Praising God, and having favour with all the people. And the Lord added to the church daily such as should be saved.  




Acts 11 (KJV)
26 And when he had found him, he brought him unto Antioch. And it came to pass, that a whole year they assembled themselves with the church, and taught much people. And the disciples were called Christians first in Antioch.  




Matthew 28 (KJV)
18 And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. 





19 Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: 
20 Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen.  




Matthew 18 (KJV)
20 For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them.  




Acts 14 (KJV)
27 And when they were come, and had gathered the church together, they rehearsed all that God had done with them, and how he had opened the door of faith unto the Gentiles. 
28 And there they abode long time with the disciples.  

Can you gather a building? ~ Karmen





Colossians 1 (KJV)

18 And he is the head of the body, the church: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things he might have the preeminence (supremacy).





28 Whom we preach, warning every man, and teaching every man in all wisdom; that we may present every man perfect in Christ Jesus.  




1 Timothy 3 (KJV)
15 But if I tarry long, that thou mayest know how thou oughtest to behave thyself in the house of God, which is the church of the living God, the pillar and ground of the truth.

Isaiah 14 (KJV)

3 And it shall come to pass in the day that the Lord shall give thee rest from thy sorrow, and from thy fear, and from the hard bondage wherein thou wast made to serve,





7 The whole earth is at rest, and is quiet: they break forth into singing.





12 How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations!
13 For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north:
14 I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High.
15 Yet thou shalt be brought down to hell, to the sides of the pit.






24 The Lord of hosts hath sworn, saying, Surely as I have thought, so shall it come to pass; and as I have purposed, so shall it stand:

Psalm 55 (KJV)

1 Give ear to my prayer, O God; and hide not thyself from my supplication (the action of asking or begging for something earnestly or humbly.).






2 Attend unto me, and hear me: I mourn in my complaint, and make a noise;








12 For it was not an enemy that reproached (disgraced, abused) me; then I could have borne (tolerated, endured) it: neither was it he that hated me that did magnify himself against me; then I would have hid myself from him:
13 But it was thou, a man mine equal, my guide, and mine acquaintance.
14 We took sweet counsel together, and walked unto the house of God in company.




16 As for me, I will call upon God; and the Lord shall save me.



17 Evening, and morning, and at noon, will I pray, and cry aloud: and he shall hear my voice.







21 The words of his mouth were smoother than butter, but war was in his heart: his words were softer than oil, yet were they drawn swords.





22 Cast thy burden upon the Lord, and he shall sustain thee: he shall never suffer the righteous to be (replaced, displaced) moved.






23 But thou, O God, shalt bring them down into the pit of destruction: bloody and deceitful men shall not live out half their days; but I will trust in thee.

Psalm 56 (KJV)

1  Be merciful unto me, O God: for man would swallow me up; he fighting daily oppresseth me.
2 Mine enemies would daily swallow me up: for they be many that fight against me, O thou most High.
3 What time I am afraid, I will trust in thee.






4 In God I will praise his word, in God I have put my trust; I will not fear what flesh can do unto me.





5 Every day they wrest (falsify) my words: all their thoughts are against me for evil.
6 They gather themselves together, they hide themselves, they mark my steps, when they wait for my soul.





10 In God will I praise his word: in the Lord will I praise his word.






11 In God have I put my trust: I will not be afraid what man can do unto me.




12 Thy vows (oaths, covenants) are upon me, O God: I will render (provide) praises unto thee.







13 For thou hast delivered my soul from death: wilt not thou deliver my feet from falling, that I may walk before God in the light of the living?

Psalm 58 (KJV)

3 The wicked are estranged from the womb: they go astray as soon as they be born, speaking lies.

Psalm 50 (KJV)


14 Offer unto God thanksgiving (blessings, petitions, thanks, praise, gratefulness, grace) ; and pay thy vows (solemn promises) unto the most High:



15 And call upon me in the day of trouble: I will deliver thee, and thou shalt glorify me.





16 But unto the wicked God saith, What hast thou to do to declare my statutes, or that thou shouldest take my covenant in thy mouth?
17 Seeing thou hatest instruction, and casteth my words behind thee.






20 Thou sittest and speakest against thy brother; thou slanderest thine own mother's son.






23 Whoso offereth praise glorifieth me: and to him that ordereth his conversation aright will I shew the salvation of God.

Psalm 52 (KJV)


1 Why boastest thou thyself in mischief, O mighty man? the goodness of God endureth continually.





2 The tongue deviseth mischiefs; like a sharp razor, working deceitfully.




3 Thou lovest evil more than good; and lying rather than to speak righteousness. Selah.






4 Thou lovest all devouring (destroying, annihilating) words, O thou deceitful tongue.



6 The righteous also shall see, and fear, and shall laugh at him:
7 Lo, this is the man that made not God his strength; but trusted in the abundance of his riches, and strengthened himself in his wickedness.

Psalm 54 (KJV)

3 For strangers are risen up against me, and oppressors seek after my soul: they have not set God before them. Selah.






4 Behold, God is mine helper: the Lord is with them that uphold my soul.
5 He shall reward evil unto mine enemies: cut them off in thy truth.



7 For he hath delivered me out of all trouble: and mine eye hath seen his desire upon mine enemies.

Psalm 68 (KJV)

1 Let God arise, let his enemies be scattered: let them also that hate him flee before him.
2 As smoke is driven away, so drive them away: as wax melteth before the fire, so let the wicked perish at the presence of God.
3 But let the righteous be glad; let them rejoice before God: yea, let them exceedingly rejoice.




4 Sing unto God, sing praises to his name: extol (praise enthusiastically.) him that rideth upon the heavens by his name Jah, and rejoice before him.
5 A father of the fatherless, and a judge of the widows, is God in his holy habitation.
