Important Foundations of Building the Church

By: Bishop OB Commey
2nd Timothy 2:19-21
IMPORTANT FOUNDATIONS
1 . Commitment
Assess the levels of commitment and press to the higher level

  • Fair weather
    People who join when everything is OK.
    Proverbs 19:4 (Wealth maketh many friends)
    This is the lowest type of commitment
  • Situational friendship commitment
    This is based on a situation.
  • Non – situational
    This is not based on any situation
  • Marital commitment
    Your commitment to the church should be like marriage. Should be forever.
  • Romans 7:4
    Romans 8:38
    2. Devotion
    Acts 2:41-42
    Psalm 95:6-7
    Types of Church Members with different levels of devotion
    a) Deer
    Very fast, swift and unfriendly
    They do not want to linger around in church
    b) Goat
    A bit more domesticated, they linger around a bit.
    They are independent and stubborn. They don’t follow easily.
    c) Sheep
    Easy to control, they follow the Shepherd.

    How to be devoted and make others be devoted
    1. Make a decision to be devoted today
    2. We must say good things about the church.
    3. Say good things about the pastors
    4. Interact and socialize in the church
    5. Say good things about the teachings
    6. Help your friends in church to get jobs
    Galatians 6:10
    7. Marry within the church
    8. Let the pastor be a father to you
    John 8:35

    3. Loyalty
    When you are loyal, you are reliable and dependable, staunch and devoted.
    It also means to be the same.
    Judges 11:30
    To be faithful to the end.

    4. Permanence
    You should become a permanent member in the church.
    Be transformed by the renewal of your mind
    How?

    1. See yourself as part of the family
    Ephesians 3:14-15
    2. See yourself as part of a building
    1st Corinthians 9:2
    3. Have it in mind that you are part of a garden. You add to the beauty of the church
    4. Have it in mind that you are part of a tree
    John 15:2
    5. You must be planted in order to flourish
    Psalm 92:13
