Message Notes & Worship Songs 

“The Church is ________” (part 3)

Recap of parts 1 and 2:  The Church is made of those who believe in the identity and role of Jesus – “Jesus is Lord.” In addition, the Church are those who believe in their identity and role in Jesus – “stones He is using to build His house.”

Jesus builds His Church – His people, His direction, His timing. Jesus protects and empowers His Church – to withstand and to plunder Satan’s kingdom.

Big idea from part 3:   The Church, you and I, are entrusted with the keys to Jesus’ Kingdom; opening the way for others to enter.

Key Bible passages: Mt 16:19; Mt 23:13/Lk 11:52; Isaiah 22:15-22



Who used “the key,” opening the way for you to Jesus’ Kingdom?

Did anyone ever close the door to Jesus on you or a loved one?

What might be the next right step for you or this home church?


Worship Song Lyrics
Amazing Grace

Verse 1
Amazing grace how sweet the sound
That saved a wretch like me
I once was lost but now am found
Was blind but now I see

Verse 2
‘Twas grace that taught my heart to fear
And grace my fears relieved
How precious did that grace appear
The hour I first believed

Verse 3
Through many dangers toils and snares
I have already come
‘Tis grace has brought me safe thus far
And grace will lead me home

Verse 4
When we’ve been there ten thousand years
Bright shining as the sun
We’ve no less days to sing God’s praise
Than when we’ve first begun

Build My Life

Verse 1
Worthy of ev’ry song we could ever sing
Worthy of all the praise we could ever bring
Worthy of ev’ry breath we could ever breathe
We live for You

Verse 2
Jesus the name above ev’ry other name
Jesus the only one who could ever save
Worthy of ev’ry breath we could ever breathe
We live for You
We live for You

Holy there is no one like You
There is none beside You
Open up my eyes in wonder and show me who You are
And fill me with Your heart
And lead me in Your love to those around me

I will build my life upon Your love
It is a firm foundation
I will put my trust in You alone
And I will not be shaken
