Verses:

1 Tim. 3:15 “But if I delay, I write that you may know how one ought to conduct himself in the house of God, which is the church of the living God, the pillar and base of the truth.”

 

Excerpts:

Only when we are clear concerning all the following ten points can we serve in the church. First, in order to administrate in the church, we must have Christ revealed in us. Second, we must clearly see that Christ is our life. Third, we should realize that we must live in Christ. Fourth, we must see that what we are and what we have in ourselves has been terminated on the cross. Fifth, we must not serve according to what we are and what we have in ourselves. Sixth, we should not dispense anything other than Christ in our service. Seventh, we should not expect those with whom we serve to change in any way; instead, we should desire only that they be filled with Christ and be fully gained by Christ. Eighth, we must clearly see that there should be only one result in our service. Christ must be produced in the church so that everyone has Christ, so that Christ increases in every member, and so that all will arrive at the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ. Ninth, we must pray for the above eight points; we must be men of prayer. Tenth, we must be like the apostle Paul who had a living faith, believing that God can accomplish these points. The power of God is inside of us. Through the operation of the power within us, God can fulfill all these things. This is the administration of the church. (How to Administrate the Church, ch. 9)
