Questions that deserve to be revisited when believers continue to be accused of “Forsaking the Body of Christ” after they can’t find a suitable “church” to attend. (A repost from June 2012)
What makes a church a church?
A seminary trained minister?
Organised meetings – especially on Sunday?
Community recognition that THIS is a church?
Or is it any group of believers meeting any place they can at any time they can as long as their focus is relationship with God through Jesus: whether others recognise it as “church” or not.
I suspect many recognised, respectable “churches” would not fulfil that last definition.
