The church is not necessarily the building in which you worship. You are the church, and the church constitutes the body of Christ. The devil, the world, and the flesh have waged war to conquer the church by inputting vices that she may stop growing and die off. But God in His word promised that the gate of hell shall not prevail against His church.
Regardless of all the effort put together to facilitate the church’s growth, prayer remains the most effective weapon. The church still needs you to pray for her growth physically, spiritually, and in all other ramifications.
