The church as we know it in our day is not a God thing it is a man thing. It is just in the human nature to start groups and organizations. When you find a few people that have the same point of view, they start gathering stones, build some building, put a steeple on top,give it a name, get themselves a leader and a church is born. You have polarization, group norms and culture, partiality and exclusivity.

That is never what Jesus intended and neither that He told us to do. Jesus said to the disciples the great command to us Go into all the world, preach the gospel to all nations, baptize them in the Name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Ghost and teach them to do all what I commanded you, that is His commission. We are ourselves to be disciples of Jesus Christ and we must make disciples of Jesus Christ. Jesus nowhere commanded to go and build churches.

If we ourselves are not disciples of Christ if we do not have a relationship with Jesus Christ. we cannot make disciples. Jesus taught His disciples, they walked with Him, followed Him, learned from Him. They themselves were disciples and they made disciples. Centuries later people started building churches. As soon as people build churches and organizations the focus is moved from Christ the King to the organization.

Jesus Christ came and He preached the Kingdom of God. The Kingdom of God is about Jesus Christ being the King, Lord and Master. Jesus said: If you love Me, keep My commandments. He never said: Go and build churches He said make disciples. We must OBEY CHRIST and be part of HIS KINGDOM. That is what the Kingdom of Heaven is about, it is about discipleship, membership of the Kingdom of Heaven of which Jesus Christ is King and Lord. He said: call nobody your leader, because Christ is your Leader. He said: Call nobody your teacher because Christ Himself is your Teacher. He said call nobody rabbi, father because God is your Father. We are to follow Jesus Christ and to bring other people to Him. We are followers of Jesus Christ and we must daily get into a closer and closer relationship with Jesus Christ, obeying Him, doing His commandments.

The Bible is not difficult, Jesus commandments are not difficult to understand. A primary school kid can read the Bible and understand it. The Apostles were not educated people, they were fisherman. You do not need a college degree to explain the gospel. You only need to know Jesus Christ the King and His commandments. Anybody can read His commandments, go read it Matthew, Mark, Luke and John, and do it. Just do what Jesus told us and we will be His disciples and we will be able to make disciples.
The Kingdom of God will grow and the body of Christ will grow because we are taking people to the Head and the Head Himself He will be guiding His church. It is about Christ, about the Kingdom of God, the Lordship of Jesus Christ. it is not about buildings and groups and people, It is all about the King of kings the Lord of lords Jesus Christ let us take people to the King. Let us ourselves follow Jesus Christ the King.

THE EXPLANATION CONCERNING THE CHURCH OF GOD (ECCLESIA) IN TURKU, FINLAND

In the church of God in Turku, that gathers and has its meetings in Sofiankatu, the Christians use only the Bible as the book for the doctrine and the teachings of the Bible concerning the original apostolic form. If somebody in Sofiankatu has possibly taught beside the Bible that does not mean that it is the doctrine of the church of God. In the church of God, that is, in the body of Christ, is the only doctrine, that of the Word of God which is the Bible. This source of teaching does not alter even though some teachers may teach in another way. NOTE! In the church of God there is no such ministry as an ideological teacher of the Word who would have the right to demand the Christians to follow his teachings. The brothers who have received the ministry of the teacher have to teach the believers to devote themselves to the apostoles and prophets teachings, in the original form of Christian faith, not to their own teachings and opinions (Eph.4:11-15). And everyone must realize and confess that we teach the matters of Bible only by understanding according to how far the Holy Spirit has led us. This should be the way in every assembly on Christians.

The activity, working and the doctrine of the church of God is NOT based nor has its foundations in the opinions or decisions of todays people neither in the human-made religious confessions of faith, like they are in denominations. Official confessions of faith or definitions of doctrine must not be established at all. You see: OUR CONFESSION OF FAITH HAS ALREADY BEEN WRITTEN! IT IS THE BIBLE! Do not go beyond what is written (1.Chor.4:6, also Rev.22:18. 19). Our working is structured and built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the chief corner stone (Eph.2:20). By this the Bible teaches that first of all Jesus himself is the foundation and source of all teaching in His church. Secondly, Jesus later on gave His teachings to the apostles of the early church: How shall we escape, if we neglect so great salvation; which at the first began to be spoken by the Lord, and was confirmed unto us by them that heard him; God also bearing them witness, both with signs and wonders, and with divers miracles, and gifts of the Holy Ghost, according to his own will (Hebr.2:3-4)?

Thus, the early church received its essential foundational doctrine from Jesus. And everybody who became a believer accepted it. And they continued stedfastly in the apostles' doctrine (Acts.2:42). To that same apostolic teaching must the church of God commit itself to the very end.
If you think somebody has taught in a different way compared to the teachings of the apostles of the early church, DO NOT RECEIVE SUCH TEACHINGS. That is not the doctrine of Christ so it is not the doctrine of His church either. You, instead, teach the issue in a more biblical way and make the point clear by the Bible in case you have received the grace to be a ministry in teaching. The men involved in the work of God are allowed to correct the brothers who are teachers in church BUT ONLY by the Word of God, not by anyones own opinions or by those of denominations.

Every religious human-made doctrine in these issues must be rejected. The teachings of the so called fathers of the church (after 100 A.D.) are not the teachings of our church. We must be firm only in the word taught in the first century A.D; in the word that the Holy Spirit has given us in the Bible. The church with its doctrine was ideal and in the will of God by the century 100 A.D. The doctrine taught in the church of God in Turku is in one accord with that of the early church. This includes also the way of working, serving and the way of life.

We must not try to apply the teachings of Gods word to denominations which were started after the apostolic era. NOTE!!! Here is a blunt example: The Lutheran church would not become the church of God that is ecclesia even though all the biblical doctrines would be filled into it. The original ecclesia of God was not the Lutheran church. The same fact goes as far as all the denominations are concerned. We must keep apostolic faith inside its original frames. Otherwise the right teaching is not biblical either. The right truth is the right truth only when it is applied to the practice of the biblical church. The words and the deeds must be in one accord inside the biblical frames!

Inside Gods church the apostolic doctrine is working in faith, by faith and in love and by love. Let all bitterness, and wrath, and anger, and clamour, and evil speaking, be put away from you, with all malice: And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ's sake hath forgiven you (Eph.4:29-32).
