What Should We Call the Church?

By Royce Frederick

It was Built by CHRIST — Matthew 16:18

Its Foundation is CHRIST — 1 Corinthians 3:11

It is Owned by CHRIST — Matthew 16:18

Its only Head is CHRIST — Colossians 1:18

It is the Body of CHRIST — Ephesians 1:22-23

It was Bought by CHRIST — Acts 20:28

Its Saviour is CHRIST — Ephesians 5:23

It is the Bride of CHRIST — Ephesians 5:22-32

It is Sanctified by CHRIST — Ephesians 5:26

It teaches the Doctrine of CHRIST — 2 John 9

When local churches follow CHRIST, they honor Him and follow His word

when they call themselves “churches of Christ”  (Rom. 16:16) and call His

church throughout the world the church of Christ (see Col. 1:18).
