What does it mean that the Church is holy?

Share |

Christ’s Church is holy because

  1. Christ has sanctified and cleansed it from sin with His blood through the Means of Grace.
    Heb. 10: 19;22: Having therefore, brethren, boldness to enter into the holiest, by the blood of Jesus... having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience, and our bodies washed with pure water.

    1 Cor. 1:2: Unto the church of God which is at Corinth, to them that are sanctified in Christ Jesus, called to be saints.

  2. It serves God with holy and righteous works.
    1 Pet. 2:5: 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.
