8.0.9a.i “The CHURCHES THAT JESUS BUILT”, by Roy Mason; INTRODUCTION.

As we have seen

THE LORD JESUS CHRIST

Founded His Own churches

DURING

JESUS’ EARTHLY MINISTRY.

And, as we continue 

STUDYING in HISTORY,

from 30 A.D. to 500 A.D.,

WE BEGIN TO SEE

SATAN’S COUNTERFEIT ‘church’

Invented by men,

under the influence of Satan,

Separating into

a Different FALSE ‘Religion’

ENTIRELY APART FROM

GOD, or THE BIBLE,

and

NOTHING LIKE

THE KIND of CHURCH

THAT JESUS BUILT.

So, before we go on

in our Study of History,

we want to emphasize

what we mean by

THE CHURCH

THAT JESUS BUILT,

from the book of that same title,

by ROY MASON, Th.D.

– Chapter 1 – 

Introduction

In THE BIBLE:

THE LORD’S CHURCHES

are

‘ECCLESIAS’, or assemblies. 

There are even

non-‘religious’ ECCLESIAS

in The BIBLE

and they are always

ASSEMBLIES,

 CONGREGATED TOGETHER.

In every Passage mentioned in

The BIBLE,

regarding

THE CHURCH

THAT JESUS BUILT,

THE LORD’S ‘ECCLESIAS’ –

 ‘Are CONGREGATIONS

of BAPTIZED BELIEVERS,

by The Authority of God,

Scripturally Associated together

in

‘THE FELLOWSHIP

OF THE GOSPEL’.

THE CHURCH

THAT JESUS BUILT,

which are always

THE LORD’S

Called Out and

Assembled

Fellowships of Believers,

or ‘ECCLESIAS’ –

are

 ORGANIZED SPIRITUAL

DEMOCRACIES,

AND ARE, ALSO, ALWAYS

– Visible and LOCAL SPECIFIC

and PARTICULAR GATHERINGS.

THE CHURCH

THAT JESUS BUILT,

or, ‘ECCLESIA’ – is

A NEW TESTAMENT INSTITUTION,

Designed by Our Lord,

Historically Instituted

and Organised

by THE LORD JESUS CHRIST,

DURING

JESUS’ EARTHLY MINISTRY;

JESUS’

NEW TESTAMENT INSTITUTION,

THE CHURCH THAT JESUS BUILT,

or, ‘ECCLESIA’ –

that was

Designed, Organised

and

Historically Instituted 

by THE LORD JESUS CHRIST,

was, also,

Promised by Jesus

to Persist in Existence

from century to century;

Conserving the Characteristics

of the New Testament model

for ‘a church’,

THAT JESUS ESTABLISHED,

UNTIL

JESUS COMES AGAIN.

A NEW TESTAMENT

INSTITUTION

of THE CHURCH

THAT JESUS BUILT,

or, ‘ECCLESIA’ –  

is easily identified

by the distinguishing ‘marks’

of its Doctrinal Integrity,

as she is seen

Persisting throughout History

from century to century;

WITH THE HOLY SPIRIT of GOD

Conserving the Characteristics

of the New Testament model;

as these Called-Out Believers

and Followers of Jesus

are

FAITHFUL to

GOD’S PRESERVED WORD,

functioning True to the Genius

of The Holy Mission,

GIVEN TO HER, BY JESUS CHRIST

And

SUPERNATURALLY

Justifying her Existence

by Jesus’ Achievements in

SPREADING THE WORD of GOD

and

THE GOSPEL of JESUS CHRIST,

with His Benevolent Blessing

to sin-cursed humanity,

through

The Continued Teaching

and Preaching of

THE CHURCH

THAT JESUS BUILT.

This is the THESIS, Dr. Roy Mason

so ably defends in the following pages.

Dr. Mason

is frank, candid, consistent, convincing.

His arguments are impelling

and unanswerable.

He states the representative,

Bible Baptist belief,

with, its essential implications.

He gives our

‘reason for the faith

that is in us’

– the ineradicable,

consciousness of a mission and a destiny

– the utter intolerance of comity

and compromise,

– the unique point of view

in which we have the paradox

of inflexible exclusiveness

synthesized with superlative toleration

and good will.”

“Since the doctrine of the Lord’s churches

is clearly defined,

BY THE NEW TESTAMENT, 

this book admirably

clarifies the atmosphere

for the general public.

Its challenging restatement of the

BAPTIST THESIS

not only meets, with unflinching candor,

the ‘invisible church’ propaganda

of Pedobaptists,

but the superficial sentiment

of non-denominational

and anti-denominational Modernists.

Dr. Mason

sounds the clarion call

to a new crusade of

Constructive Doctrinal Preaching.

He points the way to a program

which would revitalize

The Lord’s True churches.

The one dynamic which has always heartened

and impelled is an intelligent

CONVICTION

and a

BIBLICALLY BASED

Adherence to

THE MISSION of

THE CHURCH THAT JESUS BUILT.

THE CHURCH THAT JESUS BUILT

has THE MESSAGE the world needs.

 …

“Dr. Mason’s ringing appeal to reason

and Divine Revelation in this book

must win the open mind

that gives him a hearing.

Pastors who are wise will put

‘THE CHURCH THAT JESUS BUILT’

in their teaching program.

It deserves a place in the training courses

of all our auxiliary departments.

The author has put all our Baptists

under obligation to thank him

for a service so timely, fundamental,

and far-reaching.

May God bless this seventh edition

and make it an abiding blessing

to an ever-increasing company of readers

and open-minded students

through all the years.”

J. W. Jent

President, Southwest Baptist College,

Bolivar, Mo

In “THE CHURCH THAT JESUS BUILT”

we find that-

The Baptist faith is radically

and fundamentally different

from that of all others.

On this ground alone

can their continued separate existence

of The Baptist Faith

be justified.

-M. P. Hunt, in “The Baptist Faith. “
