Lesson 20

God's Pattern for The Church Of Christ

1. "There is ______ body, and _______ Spirit, even as ye are called in ______ hope of your calling; _______ Lord, _______ faith, _______ baptism, _______ God and Father of all ..." (Eph. 4:4-6). Since God has decreed only one rule of Faith for N.T. Christianity, every believer must hear and obey this one and only pattern to please God (Luke 6:46; Gal. 1:6-9).

2. The baptized disciples "continued steadfastly in the __________ __________ ..." (Acts 2:42).

3. "Whosoever ______________, and ___________ _______ in the doctrine of Christ, hath not ________. He that abideth in the ____________ of __________, he hath both the Father and the Son" (2 John 9).

4. Noah built the ark by faith, that is, he heard and obeyed God's revelation in every thing in building the ark (Heb. 11:7). "Thus did Noah, according to ______ that God ____________ him, so did he" (Gen. 6:22).

5. "... as Moses was admonished of God when he was about to make the tabernacle: for, See, saith he, that thou make _______ __________ according to the _____________ shewed to thee in the mount" (Heb. 8:5).

6. The church is built upon the teaching of Christ (Mt. 28:18-20; Eph. 2:20). All things in the realm of religion must be according to the teaching of Christ. "For other _____________ can no man lay than that is laid, which is _________ ___________" (1 Cor. 3:11).

7. If any congregation departs from God's pattern for the church of Christ, she is in sin and has ceased to be the church of Christ. "Except the Lord ________ the house, they labor in ________ that build it ..." (Ps. 127:1). Jesus also says, "Every plant, which my heavenly Father hath not _____________ , shall be ___________ _______" (Mat. 15:13).

Conclusion: Jesus commanded His apostles to teach men to observe ALL THINGS whatsoever He had commanded them (Mat.28:19-20). The commandment to observe "ALL THINGS" has excluded one's partial obedience to God's word. Therefore, we must completely observe God's revealed pattern for obedience, worship, organization, teaching, and work in the church of Christ, in order to please Him (Mat. 15:8-9, 13).
