The Church Is Not a Building

When we view our building as our legacy—as the thing that will last—we tie the church, which Jesus founded and against which the gates of hell will not prevail, to a building, which will crumble and collapse in a matter of time.

Quote from an article I read about church architecture. It’s especially interesting for me as I serve a congregation who has been blessed to have a beautiful church building built in 1890. It has served our people and community well for generations. But I don’t want our future tied to a building. I want our future tied to God’s power in Christ as found in the Gospel.
