What Defines a Church? Jesus Our High Priest By His Blood By the New Covenant

"19Having therefore, brethren, boldness to enter into the holiest by the blood of Jesus, 20By a new and living way, which he hath consecrated for us, through the veil, that is to say, his flesh; 21And having an high priest over the house of God; 22Let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience, and our bodies washed with pure water." (Hebrews 10: 19-22)

There are three things that a church has to talk about to be a church:

1. Jesus as our High Priest Forever
2. His blood, which cleanses us forevermore from unrighteousness
3. And the New Covenant, in which God promises everything to us, if we just believe that He did a perfect work through His Son at the Cross.

This New Covenant is crucial for us to understand, so that we know that no matter what fearful or dangerous challenges we may face, that they have no power.

The blood of Jesus is eternal, perfect, and ever-cleansing.

Jesus is our High Priest, and He will be our High Priest ... forever!

Anuy building where Christians meet on any given Sunday must be invested in these following principles, including the Prince of Peace.

Otherwise, it is not a church.
