The Church: An Original Poem

The Church is not a building

It is not four walls

It’s not built with earthly hands

Nor made of bricks or logs

The Church is not the pews

High ceilings or polished floors

It’s not the decorations on the walls

Nor the double doors

The Church is not a structure

Built up from the ground

The church is incorruptible

And cannot be torn down

The People of God

Filled with the Spirit of God

Doing the Work of God

By Spreading the Love of God

Makes the Church Complete

But many think the Church is material

Oh what great deceit

Truth is: the People of God are the Church

Whether at home, at work

In a building or gathered under a tree

The Church is not a place we go

But it’s who we should strive to be

-To God be the Glory
