When He promised to build His church, what name do you think should be on it? Some argue that a name holds no significance. According to Jesus, “Upon this rock, I will build my church,” Matthew 16:18. Whose church? The scripture says it was the Lord’s church. On Pentecost, baptized believers were added to the church by the Lord (Acts 2:47). He established His church, and you have the opportunity to be part of it. That’s the Gospel.

David Hill: Jesus said, upon this rock I will build my church, Matthew 16:18. The chief cornerstone, the rock solid foundation, the Messiah, son of God, promised redeemer. May I ask a question? When He said He would build His church, what name do you suppose should be on it? A man’s name? Maybe a name representing a notable practice, ordained by some men or group of men.

Maybe the name of an angel? Or a territorial name on the day of Pentecost in Acts chapter two baptized believers were being added to His church by the Lord Himself in Acts two in verse 47. What church? Whose church? The gospel says it was the Lord’s church. To what church do you belong? Some say there’s nothing in a name.

If that’s your view, we need to do some banking. I’ll meet you at your bank. How about that? The Lord built His church, one, and you can be part of it. That’s good news.
