Quotations About the Church



"He who does not have the church as his mother, does not have God as his father."

Christian Quote by - Augustine of Hippo

Christian Quote by - James K. Baxter


"The church is a perpetually defeated thing that always survives her conquerors."

Christian Quote by - Hilaire Belloc


"When a church is truly convinced that prayer is where the action is, that church will so construct its corporate activities that the prayer program will have the highest priority."

Christian Quote by - Paul E. Billheimer

Christian Quote by - Andrew Bonar


"The church is her true self only when she exists for humanity."

Christian Quote by - Dietrich Bonhoeffer


"What the church needs today is not more, or better machinery, not new organizations, or more novel methods; but men whom the Holy Spirit can use; men of prayer, men mighty in prayer."

Christian Quote by - Edward M. Bounds

Christian Quote by - R. Brokhoff


"God made so many different kinds of people. Why would he allow only one way to serve Him?"

Christian Quote by - Martin Buber

Christian Quote by - George A. Buttrick


"The church is the gathering of God's children, where they can be helped and fed like babies and then guided by her motherly care, grow up to manhood in maturity of faith."

Christian Quote by - John Calvin


"In the book of Revelation, Christ desires a militant church that will absorb suffering rather than accommodate the powers that be."

Christian Quote by - Ellen T. Charry


"You cannot pray at home, like you can at church, where there is a great multitude; where exclamations are cried out to God as from one great heart, and where there is something more: the unions of minds, the accord of souls, the bond of charity, the prayers of priests."

Christian Quote by - John Chrysostom


"Just as God's will is creation and is called 'the world' so His intention is the salvation of men, and it is called 'the Church.'"

Christian Quote by - Clement of Alexandria


"Christians in community must again show the world, not merely family values, but the bond of the love of Christ."

Christian Quote by - Edmund Clowney

Chuck Colson

William R.L. Haley


"What a wonderful thing it is to be sure of one's faith! How wonderful to be a member of the evangelical church, which preaches the free grace of God through Christ as the hope of sinners! If we were to rely solely on our works? My God! What would become of us?"

Christian Quotation by - George F. Handel


"It is common for those that are farthest from God, to boast about themselves most; when it comes to them, being near to the Church."

Christian Quotation by - Matthew Henry

Christian Quotation by - Archibald A. Hodge


"The church is in Christ, as Eve was in Adam."

Christian Quotation by - Richard Hooker


"For where the church is, there is the Spirit of God, and where the Spirit of God, there is the church and all grace."

Christian Quotation by - Saint Irenaeus


"The church must be reminded that it is not the master, or the servant of the state, but rather the conscience of the state."

Christian Quotation by - Martin Luther King Jr.

Christian Quotation by - Peter Kreeft


"Do not ride in cars: they are responsible for 20% of all fatal accidents. Do not stay at home: 17% of all accidents occur in the home. Do not walk on the streets or pavements: 14% of all accidents occur to pedestrians. Do not travel by air, rail, or water: 16% of accidents happen on these. Only .001% of all deaths occur in worship services in church, and these are usually related to previous physical disorders. Hence the safest place for you to be at any time is at church!"

Christian Quotation by - Mark Leslie
