What is the Church?

Some people think the church is a building where we worship God. The Bible tells us that the church is God's saved people. It is His kingdom. Color the picture that shows God's church. Draw an "X" through the picture that is not God's church.

Did You Know???

The Bible does not mention special "church buildings". The Bible tells us that the church met in various places. Acts 2:46 says they went from house to house breaking bread, and Acts 20:7-8 tells us that some met in an upper room. Acts 16:13 tells of some going to the riverside to preach to people. Numerous passages in the book of Acts indicate that when Paul went to a new city, the first place he went was to the Synagogue to preach to the religious people. Oddly enough, there is no mention of a building whose only purpose was for Christian worship.
