The Early Church as a Church of Worship
During the time of the Apostles, the Early Church was very strong because it was a true Church of worship. The whole congregation was worshiping with one accord, and not one was missing. “These all continued with one accord in prayer and supplication, with the women and Mary the mother of Jesus, and with His brothers.” (Acts 1:14) “And they continued steadfastly in the apostles’ doctrine and fellowship, in the breaking of bread, and in prayers.” (Acts 2:42) “And continuing daily with one accord in the temple.” (Acts 2:46) “Now the multitude of those who believed were of one heart and one soul.” (Acts 4:32)
The Importance of the Church to the Believer
According to the apostolic concepts, the church is the house of God, the pillar and the ground of the truth (1 Tim. 3:15). Everyone should hear from her and anyone who refuses to hear the church will be like a heathen and a tax collector (Matt. 8:17). Church is the bride of Christ, who came out from His pierced side on the cross, as Eve came out of Adam’s side while he was asleep. Church is the source of gifts and provider of sacraments for the believer to live as a member of that one body of Christ. Church is the gate of heaven. This indicates that there is no salvation outside the church.
The Fiery Holy Spirit
The Holy Spirit is the Spirit of sanctification and might. (Acts 1:8; Zach. 4:6) He is the fiery Spirit of God as St. Paul mentions, “For our God is a consuming fire,” (Heb. 12:29) and as Isaiah inquires saying, “Who among us shall dwell with the devouring fire? Who among us shall dwell with everlasting fire?” (Is. 33:14)
