The Church of Philadelphia

What are the characteristics of the Church of Philadelphia?

  1. Small
  2. Humble
  3. Open
  4. They speak the Truth.
  5. Faithful and Christ honoring.
  6. Honest

Let’s take a closer look at these characteristics and see what they mean and how we may apply them to our current church.Small:
By small I think we can safely say intimate and friendly. I know when I travel I always go to a church that seems to pull at me even if it is not of my confessed denomination. It’s amazing how different my experiences have been. Some mega churches managed to make me feel part of the body of Christ while some of the smaller churches made me feel like I was visiting a scene out of Steven Kings “Children of the Corn”!

The point is people, no matter what the size of the church make the difference. While ushers may be seen as the primary ambassadors of Christ to new visitors, every person in the church body can either add or subtract from the genuine Christ like feeling radiating from that church.
