The local church is God's means of equipping the saints of God and reaching the world with the gospel. It is the pillar and ground of the truth. Jesus bought the church with his precious blood and is coming back for her soon. The local church is described in the New Testament as having organization, order, and leadership. Two or three people simply meeting together does not constitute a church. Neither do Bible studies and other types of gatherings where there is not the order that is prescribed in the Bible for a New Testament Church. Forsaking the assembling of ourselves together is a sin, as we can see in the context of that verse in Hebrews 10:25. There is no provision made in the Bible for people who claim to be Christians but refuse to join themselves to a local church.
Labor Day represents a very important victory by American workers against two extremes and is ultimately the result of the influence of the Bible and Christian ethics on American culture and society.
Why is organizing the church God's way so urgent? 1Timothy 3:14–15 looks forward to the second reading in morning public worship on the coming Lord's Day. In these two verses of Holy Scripture, the Holy Spirit teaches us that organizing the church God's way was urgent enough to write about because of its relationship to God, the character of God, and its purpose from God.

God's people should reflect Him and His presence with them by doing all things in decent order. Be orderly so that you reflect God Himself. Be orderly, so that you witness to the world that God is with you. Be orderly, so that you edify one another. Be Orderly.
The message of this book is that sound doctrine, and the proper organization of the church, leads to fruitful living.
