The Church as Presence

Church buildings are visible emblems of Jesus’ street-level proximity and daily accessibility. He has ‘moved into the neighborhood’ (John 1:14, The Message). Church buildings are public outposts of the presence of God in the city’s commons.

Ephesians 2:19-22

19 So then you are no longer strangers and aliens, but you are fellow citizens with the saints and members of the household of God, 20 built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Christ Jesus himself being the cornerstone, 21 in whom the whole structure, being joined together, grows into a holy temple in the Lord. 22 In him you also are being built together into a dwelling place for God by the Spirit.
