The Church is defined as a building used for public Christian worship by Merriam-Webster Dictionary. The word "church" is mentioned more than 100 times in the New Testament. It is translated from the Greek term ekklesia which is formed from two Greek words meaning "an assembly" and "to call out" or "the called-out ones." The New Testament church is a body of believers that has been called out from the world by God to live as his people under the authority of Jesus Christ in the Earth Realm.
The founder of the home church movement in England, Canon Ernest Southcott, defined the church best. When he started and I quote, "The holiest moment of the church service is the moment when God's people, strengthened by preaching and sacrament, go out of the church doors into the world to be the church. We don't go to church; we are the church."
The church is not a place. It's not the building, it's not the location, and it's not the denomination. God's people who are in Christ Jesus are the church.
Therefore, We the Holy Temple Cathedral of Praise Ministry are a United Body which has taken its position in The Church, The Body of Christ. God has assigned us the responsibility of leading souls to Christ by accepting Him as their LORD and Savior. Along with, through the Power of the Holy Spirit, leading many into Deliverance from all spiritual bondages which Satan has attacked to them. Thus, enabling the delivered one to take their rightful position within the Body of Jesus Christ. Through this ministry, many have been healed, delivered, and set free from all types of spiritual vices and for this we give God Praise.
Our frequent gatherings together in prayer, worship and word is not a social gathering but times for building up our Spirit Man for the benefit of the Kingdom of God. We truly believe that every person God releases into the Earth Realm is released with a Divine Purpose. It is our divine assignment to aid every believer in recognizing and perfecting this Divine Purpose through corporate and personal training, both Spiritually and Naturally. Thus, enabling the Great Commission to manifest in the Earth Realm.
19. Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:
20. Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.
