Bible Quotes About Church

Matthew 16:18 And I tell you, you are Peter, and on this rock I will build my church, and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.

Ephesians 2:20-22 built on the foundation of theapostles and prophets, Christ Jesus himself being the cornerstone,  in whom the whole structure, being joined together, grows into a holy temple in the Lord. In him you also are being built together into a dwelling place for God by the Spirit.

Quotes About Church From Christians

I like the silence of a church, before the service begins better than any preaching.  –Ralph Waldo Emerson

You can be committed to Church but not committed to Christ, but you cannot be committed to Christ and not committed to church. – Joel Osteen

I think if the church did what they were supposed to do we wouldn’t have anyone sleeping on the streets.Michael W. Smith

I believe there are too many practitioners in the church who are not believers.”- C. S. Lewis

You may speak but a word to a child, and in that child there may be slumbering a noble heart which shall stir the Christian Church in years to come.”- Charles Spurgeon

What the Church needs to-day is not more machinery or better, not new organizations or more and novel methods, but men whom the Holy Ghost can use — men of prayer, men mighty in prayer. The Holy Ghost does not flow through methods, but through men. He does not come on machinery, but on men. He does not anoint plans, but men, men of prayer.”- E. M. Bounds

“I lack the fervency, vitality, life, in prayer which I long for. I know that many consider it fanaticism when they hear anything which does not conform to the conventional, sleep-inducing eulogies so often rising from Laodicean lips; but I know too that these same people can acquiescently tolerate sin in their lives and in the church without so much as tilting one hair of their eyebrows.”-Jim Eliot

One hundred religious persons knit into a unity by careful organization do not constitute a church any more than eleven dead men make a football team. The first requisite is life, always.“- A. W. Tozer

you awesome man of God.


Phil July 19, 2012 at 5:37 pm

Ralph Waldo Emerson wasn’t a Christian.


Jack Wellman July 19, 2012 at 5:50 pm

True Phil. At one time he considered himself one but then left the faith and disbelieved in miracles and thought of Jesus as only being a good man. At the time he made this quote he professed to be one…but thank you Phil, you are right.

Couldn’t agree more Faith! I knew lots of friends grniowg up though that had great christian parent, attended church regularly and still fell away from the church. If I take my kids to a baseball game, it does not make them baseball players. I believe that having your kids in big church regularly teaches them that its okay to disconnect and that church can be boring. Could it be that what is being taught is not life applicable enough? Could it be that you cannot learn to serve your parents God with out it being your own? Could it be that perhaps the church needs to rethink their strategy? Yes, the question was directed at what the “Church” should do. I believe the problem may lay though that Parents too heavily assume the church is doing the right thing and teaching the right way. Again, the “this is the way we’ve always done it” approach. This topic should be discussed more often amongst parents! Keep the Convo going ladies! : )

Dear Bia
My 4 children all grew up in the same church where they received excellent Bible teaching in Sunday School and Bible Class. All different characters and personalities. 3 are now continuing with the Lord, but one has fallen away. There is no reason to blame the church or its methods, although no church is perfect; and it’s easy to blame ourselves for mistakes we made in the family, but all 4 had the same parents. If we want our children to be believers, there is only thing we can do, and that is to PRAY for them, regularly, earnestly and scripturally – I use 1 Tim 2.4 ‘God wants all men to be saved’ and 1 John 5.14,15. [I got that from George Muller – read his books!] Unless we commit to the hard work of prayer, it’s no use blaming methods or people or parents. It is the Spirit’s work to change hearts. Remember too Luke 11, the friend who wouldn’t take no for an answer – we need to persevere and keep asking. I watch the horizon each day for my son (like the father in the Prodigal Son story) and I believe he will come. So yes, work at better methods, but prayer is the work which must come first. Fran

Thanks for sharing this information.


Jack Wellman April 21, 2020 at 9:28 am

Hello Olivia. We appreciate your comment but your website have people on staff that are not biblical. for example, they have women pastors and they call themselves apostles, and other troubling things that I checked out on your website and it is not biblical so please depart from this ministry as it has very serious doctrinal issues, therefore I deleted the website from your comment for the saftey of our readers so they won’t be decieved.


Joseph Miller March 25, 2021 at 5:28 pm

A popular church is not a biblical church and a biblical church is not popular.


Jack Wellman March 27, 2021 at 6:04 pm

I can see this as true in many cases Mr. Miller. Thank you sir.
