My Church

J.B. Moody

Chapter One

Address of Welcome to the
Southern Baptist Convention.

Mr. President, Brethren of the Convention, and Visitors:





Chapter Two

The Stewardship of the Faith.

The following address was delivered at the B. Y. P. U. Encampment, at Estill Springs, Tennessee, June 25, 1907. As many of the brethren expressed a desire to see it in print, I hereby comply, after having given it to my Bible Class.






Chapter Three

Church Characteristics.
Was the First Church a Baptist Church?






Chapter Four

Church Loyalty.

1 Corinthians 11:22—Despise ye the Church of God.
(Read Romans 12:4-8 and 1 Corinthians 12:12-28.)



"Turning to the New Testament we find the word church used in two special senses, first as a local body of baptized believers, and second as including all the redeemed of all ages and lands."

These local churches, the only kind known to the New Testament, were independent bodies and were subject to no central authority."


"I love thy church, O God,
Her walls before thee stand,
Dear as the apple of thine eye!
And graven on thy hand;
For her my tears shall fall,
For her my prayers ascend,
To her my toils and cares be given,
Till cares and toils shall end.

Beyond my highest joy
I prize her heavenly ways,
Her sweet communion solemn vows,
Her hymns of love and praise.
Sure as thy truth shall stand,
To Zion shall be given
The greatest glories earth can give,
And brighter bliss of heaven."




Chapter 5

Church Communion.

1 Corinthians 10:16, 17The cup of blessing which we bless, is it not the communion of the blood of Christ? The loaf which we break, is it not the communion of the body of Christ? For we the many are one loaf, one body, for we all partake of the one loaf.
