    Four Characteristics Of A Healthy Church
    There are the certain characteristics that form a church that pleases our Lord. Each of these distinctions are extremely important.

We should follow that example of devotion—and to the same things. Back then, they had no designated church building, but “every day they continued to meet together in the temple courts. They broke bread in their homes and ate together with glad and sincere hearts” (Acts 2:46). Wherever the meeting takes place, believers thrive on fellowship with other believers and the teaching of God’s Word.
