The Church meets together locally, under various names and denominations, for the purpose of worship, praise, fellowship, and the teaching and preaching of God’s Word: with its governing body of Pastors, Elders, Deacons, etc.
EPHESIANS 5:23 For the husband is the head of the wife, even as
Christ is head of the Church: and is Savior of the body.
The Judgment Seat of Christ
The Judgment Seat of Christ will take place, when the Church is caught up to meet him in the air at his second coming. this judgment is upon the works and not the sins of the believer. The results of this judgment will be reward or loss of reward, but the believer shall be saved.

judgment unto the Son.
Great White Throne Judgment
The Great White Throne Judgmentwill be upon all the unsaved people, from the beginning of humanity to the end. This judgment will be according to peoples works and any person not found in the Book of life, is thrown into the Lake of Fire. This judgment will take place at the end of the Millennial Reign of Jesus Christ.
There will be a day of reckoning, for all the evil things that have been done; throughout all of humanity. God has seen everything and it has been recorded and each will be judged according to what was written.
REVELATION 20:11-15 And I saw a great white throne, and Him that sat on
it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and there was
found no place for them.
Jesus Christ commanded his disciples to preach the gospel to all the world, baptizing all who believed, in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost. This command was faithfully carried out in the early church. Water baptism is for believers only; those who hear the gospel, believe, and turn to Christ as their Savior.
This is the pattern we see throughout the early church, as is seen in the book of Acts. Water baptism is the outward symbolic act, of the regeneration, that has already taken place in the heart ( spirit ). It symbolizes the death of the old life and the birth of the new.
MARK 16:15-16 And he said unto them. “Go ye into all the world, and
preach the gospel to every creature”.
Communion, also called the Lord’s supper is an ordinance that the church observes; in remembrance of the sacrifices that the Lord Jesus made. The bread is a symbol of his body, broken for us and the cup, a symbol of his blood, shed for the remission of our sins.

it, and gave it to his disciples, and said, take, eat; this is my body.
The scriptures teach that we are the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus (Gal_3:26 ) and as sons, are joint heirs with Jesus Christ.
A. CHILDREN OF GOD
JOHN 1:12 But as many as receive him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name.
GALATIANS 4:6 And because ye are sons, God hath sent forth the Spirit of his Son into your hearts, crying Abba, Father.
PHILIPPIANS 2:15 That ye may be blameless and harmless, the sons of God, without rebuke, in the midst of a crooked and perverse nation, among whom ye shine as lights in the world.
ROMANS 8:15-16 For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry Abba Father.
Vs.16 The Spirit itself ( himself ) beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God.
1 JOHN 3:1-2 Behold what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God: therefore the world knoweth us not, because it knew him not.
Vs.2 Beloved, now are ye the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is.
B. HEIRS OF GOD
1 PETER 1:4 To an inheritance incorruptible, and undefiled, and that fadeth not away, reserved in heaven for you.
ROMANS 8:17 And if children then heirs; heirs of God, and joint heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be glorified together.
GALATIANS 3:29 And if ye be Christ’s then are ye Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise.
The righteousness of God, is all that God demands and approves, to be in good standing with him, and is ultimately found in Christ. By faith in Jesus Christ, the righteousness of Christ was imputed unto us.
ROMANS 3:21-22 But now the righteousness of God apart from the law is
manifested, being witnessed by the prophets.
Death can be defined as separation. Physical death is the separation of the spirit and the soul from the body; spiritual death, is the separation of a person from God; ( as in the case of people who have not accepted and received Jesus Christ as their Savior ) and the second death is eternal separation from God, in the Lake of Fire, without no hope.
By his death, burial, and resurrection, Jesus Christ defeated death, the grave, and hell, for all of humanity. His victory has become our victory, delivering us from the fear of death. ( This is not automatically applied to the human race, it is only to those who have receive Jesus as their Savior).
Jesus Defeated Death
HEBREWS 2:14-15 Forasmuch then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, he also himself likewise took part of the same; that through death he might destroy him that had the power of death, that is, the devil;
Vs.15 And deliver them who through fear of death were all their lifetime subject to bondage.
