1007—the minimum for church
This is Simple Church Minute. In Matthew 18 verse 20, Jesus says, “For where two or three are gathered in my name, I am there in the midst of them.” Colossians 1 verse 18 says, “And He is the head of the body, the church. Ephesians 5 verse 22 also does. First Corinthians 12 verse 12 says, “For as the body is one and has many members, but all the members of that one body, being many, are one body, so also is Christ.” The most basic definition of the church is two or three with Jesus to lead. Nothing was said about buildings or corporations. First Thessalonians 5 verse 11 tells us to comfort and edify one another. Nothing was said about one person doing all the edifying. Acts 2 verses 42 to 47 tell us about caring for each other and the poor. Look those up—I did not quote any of those out of the context the early church knew, but seems out of context for the society we live in.
