GOD'S NEW HOLY TEMPLE

Although it was left standing physically, God had finished with the Temple building of the Old Covenant. It was later destroyed in the year AD70 by the Romans.

He would build His own New Covenant Kingdom Temple with His own "living stones", the members of the household of God:

"Now, therefore, you are no longer strangers and foreigners, but fellow citizens with the saints and members of the household of God,

having been built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ Himself being the chief cornerstone,

in whom the whole building, being joined together, grows into a holy temple in the Lord,

in whom you also are being built together for a dwelling place of God in the Spirit," Ephesians 2'19-22.

THE HOUSE OF CHRIST

Christ's People, are also His spiritual house. They are all related to Him through the Holy Spirit.

The inspired writer to the Hebrews (3'6) says:

"... Christ as a Son over His own house, whose house we are if we hold fast the confidence and the rejoicing of the hope firm to the end".

In parallel to the House of Christ are the Believers' physical houses. They make ideal settings for Kingdom House Gatherings.

They are well positioned for all-round ministry.

Under the oversight of Kingdom Elders they would involve themselves in:

* considering the scriptures   * fellowshiping   * serving one another   * hospitality

* witnessing   * receiving anyone wanting to make a fresh start in life

* discipling/nurturing new and young Believers  * welcoming inquirers

* encouraging one another   * and more
