There are some differences depending on your view of the church.
The Bible teaches us to use all of Scripture to understand Scripture. Part of this is reading, studying, and applying verses in context.
For the purposes of this blog I am making some assumptions. Namely, that you are a born again believer, that you either are or want to be a fundamentalist, that you want to grow.
The church is a body of believers organized by the Lord Jesus, founded upon Him, and both organized and structured by Him as expressed in the Bible.
