"Every day they continued to meet in the temple courts. They broke bread in their homes and ate together with glad and sincere hearts" (Acts 2: 46).

Because of the church, I met an incredible woman over forty years ago. The Lord gave me enough wisdom to make her my wife, and my life has been better ever since. It is a great blessing to know that there is a person in the world in whom you can have complete trust. I believe it is the church that enabled me to find a person like her and has given her enough patience to put up with me. The church is cast in a poor light when a highly visible and influential member is caught doing something immoral. Those that are not strong people of God are at the ready to pounce on such people and their actions. It is their opportunity to mock the institution to which that person is affiliated, and thus Christians everywhere. Here's the real truth! The vast majority of church going Christians are honest, moral and reliable people. They are people who's goals are to become more like Christ each day

Although the church about humans, it is not a human institution. God is the foundation of the church and Jesus is its cornerstone. It is of God's design and it gives us help in addressing our needs and problems. Unalike man-made institutions, very few church members are in some power struggle to succeed. Very few people have any monetary gain associated with the church. Our success lies in its founder, and He supplies us with the tools needed to flourish in this life and the one to come. Even though the failure of a few make a good story for the media to run with, we know that it occupies little of what the church is all really about. Simply put, the church is God's finest design, and the real world and real Christians will testify to it...

"The church's one foundation is Jesus Christ her Lord; She is His new creation by water and the Word;
From heaven He came and sought her to be His holy bride; With His own blood He bought Her, and for her life He died.
"

Samuel J. Stone 1866
