    B. The Church Is The Only Organization
       Jesus Said He Would Build (Matt. 16:18)
“Any view, then, of how Christians should use
their material possessions must focus first and
 foremost on local churches. This is what we
   see in the Bible. To bypass this important
 concept in Scripture is, in essence, to ignore
what is recorded by gifted men inspired by the
   Holy Spirit. Furthermore,…if Christians
 bypass the concept of local Church, they will
inevitably violate a number of other important
           supracultural principles…
 Before we support any particular parachurch
ministry financially, it is important to view that
     ministry through the lens of biblical
 ecclesiology [i.e., the Bible’s teaching on the
  Church]. In other words, we must carefully
   evaluate the function and goals of every
  parachurch ministry by what the Scripture
       teaches about the local Church.”
