Does It Matter if We Gather?

Part 1:
“The Gathering Church Deeply Matters to Jesus”

by Michael Lewis

September 12, 2021


Mathew 16:13-18


1. Church is NOT something you go to, but something you  are .

Eph. 2:20-22

Uber Church?

2. There is one  universal church .

Acts 2:47; Rev. 13:8

3. By far the most references to the church in the NT speak of a local congregation  gathering  in a specific  place .

The local church is a community of believers who  gather  regularly, committed together to help each others follow Jesus and continue His mission.


1. Jesus loves each individual but he came to establish the  church . (Acts 2; Acts 5; Act 6; Eph. 3:20f)

2. Jesus is the  owner . (Acts 20:28)

3. Jesus is the  builder . (Eph. 5:28-30)
