The Church is the body of Christ – “So we, (being) many, are one body in Christ, and every one members one of another,” (Romans 12:5) and as such are living parts. “Ye also, as lively stones, are built up a spiritual house, an holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices, acceptable to God by Jesus Christ.” (I Peter 2:5)
As a body we have the basic goal of maturity and reproduction. Jesus stated this purpose for the Church in the Great Commission: “Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you; and lo. I am with you always, (even) unto the end of the world. Amen.” (Matthew 28:19-20) Teaching produces maturity and world evangelism is the Church’s method of reproduction.
The Cathedral of His Glory is not only a church, it is a “Cathedral”. The word “Cathedral” means a “large mother of churches”. The local church should be large. The first church in Jerusalem had 3,000 members on the first day (Acts 2:41). It takes the resources of a great number of members to pray for and finance world evangelism!
The Cathedral is a “mother of churches”. Over 100 independent churches have come out of the Cathedral of HIS Glory in the United States and around the world through our international missions outreach.
