It’s All About Jesus
Matthew 16:13-18 When Jesus came into the coasts of Caesarea Philippi, he asked his disciples, saying, Whom do men say that I the Son of man am? And they said, Some say that thou art John the Baptist: some, Elias; and others, Jeremias, or one of the prophets. He saith unto them, But whom say ye that I am? And Simon Peter answered and said, Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God. And Jesus answered and said unto him, Blessed art thou, Simon Barjona: for flesh and blood hath not revealed it unto thee, but my Father which is in heaven. And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.
Text Matthew 16:16 And Simon Peter answered and said, Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God.
Let’s set the record straight! The church is not about entertainment, programs, popularity, size or individuals. It should be all about the Son of God.
Isaiah 42:8 I am the LORD: that is my name:and my glory will I not give to another, neither my praise to graven images. Isaiah
48:11 For mine own sake, even for mine own sake, will I do it: for how should my name be polluted? and I will not give my glory unto another.

When people church shop. What do they often look for?
Activities, events, preaching, & singing.
We are in the era of the designer church. Burger King Religion: Have it your way. What A Burger:
