The two meanings for church are; ekklesia means an assembly of people not a place, the next meaning is the word kuriakon meaning belonging to the Lord. –(1 Cor. 1:2,9)

Many think the reason for church is to be feed the Word; yes apostles are to feed the lambs, tend the sheep, feed the sheep and follow Christ, if they love the Lord. However this is not the reason for church. –(Jn. 21:15-19)

Many think the reason for church is discipleship; yes we are to disciple newborns in Christ, and all those who come to the Lord are to go through the process of discipleship nevertheless, this is not the reason for church. –(Matt. 28:19-20)

Many think the reason for church is to win as many souls you can; yes we are to win souls, and we are to know how to win souls, and we are to support the gospel ministry to the lost, and the Lord adds to the church every day on the contrary, this is not the reason for church. –(MK. 16:15-18)

Many think the reason for church is the work of the ministry; yes believers are to do the work of the ministry, and the five-fold ministry are to equipped the saints for the work of the ministry by contrast, this is not the reason for church. –(Eph. 4:11-12)

Many think the reason for church is for spiritual care from spiritual leaders and elders; yes the Lord wants and appointed spiritual elders and spiritual leaders for the spiritual care for the sheep of the congregation unfortunately, this is not the reason for church. –(Heb. 13:7,17)

Furthermore, what is the reason for church then? The reason for church is community; the church meet in the home, the church in the home and expression of the priesthood is unfolded through community. We are to fellowship, build relationships, and practice community, community in the church in the home, and community in the city church. The community of the congregation is the church in the home. Above this we are to build community among the city church of the city where we live. –(Heb. 10:24-25)

Conclusion, It is by the Blood of Christ we come together for community in the church in the home, we are consider one another, not one person cares or ministers for all, it is the one another ministry, community ministry of the church in the home to stir up love, first is love then good works, we are not to forsake the assembling of ourselves together in community in the church in the home, and we are to exhort one another, minister to one another, not just a few, instead community, and we are to build relationships and fellowship with one another, and the center is for equipping and the church in the home is for relationship. –(Heb. 10:24-25)
