Indeed, the church has no time honoured or recent record of fidelity as the bride of Christ - 2 COR. No seer is needed to vindicate this truth. The church of God is not a success seminar platform, a wealth getting avenue, but primarily a place for a sinner to be turned into a new man by the knowledge of Jesus Christ in the Holy Scriptures.

The work of the church in the 1 st century is the same word the church is to be doing today. The prescribed way in which the church worshipped God during the 1 st century is the prescribed way for the church to worship God today.
