According to the Bible, true Christian fellowship occurs in the homes of the Believers on a more personal level than what is available in many cold churches where the congregations are so large, that most people don't even really know each other. When the Disciples became too numerous in Jerusalem, God sent persecution in order to break them up into smaller groups, and to force them to obey His commandment of going into all the world. True fellowship is spiritual in nature, and does not require a physical church building, because we are the Spiritual Stones which each form a part of His Spiritual Temple. As the Apostle Peter wrote: "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. Wherefore also it is contained in the scripture, Behold, I lay in Sion a chief corner stone, elect, precious: and he that believeth on him shall not be confounded." 1 Peter 2:5,6, KJV Not only that, but Jesus Himself said: "For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them." Matthew 18:20, KJV For more in-depth information on this topic of church in the home, please read 'Where Are The First Century Churches?'. As you will discover, the First Century Church was not comprised of church buildings; it was comprised of small groups of believers meeting in each others' homes.
