“Most Christians understand that a church is not a building. However, the church is also much more than a gathering of Christians. To say the church is “the people, not the building” points us in the right direction, but it’s still dangerously incomplete. What makes a local church a church? What makes a true and health church can be boiled down to five essentials: The right preaching of Scripture, the proper administration of the Sacraments, the development of biblical leadership, the gracious implementation of church discipline, and a clear focus on the mission that Jesus gave the church.” – Joe Thorn
