Jesus Christ is the head and Savior of his body, the church. To edify and to perfect it to its fullness, Jesus Christ establishes some apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastors and teachers. He unites the church in faith and knowledge, and fitly joins the body together with the head. So, we are one with him, he as our head and we as his body, the Church. He is our Lord.
Jesus Christ gives to his church, apostles, or prophets, or evangelists, or pastors and teachers, or some of them or all of them, for the perfecting the saints, till they come unto a perfect man, unto the fullness of Christ. "Ephesians 4:10 He that descended is the same also that ascended up far above all heavens, that he might fill all things.) 11 And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers; 12 For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ: 13 Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ:" But, our evangelists and preachers unanimously proclaim that we never can become perfect. But they all say that the perfect one is Jesus Christ, and we have to claim his purity for ourselves, and if we do that we all go to heaven. But it is either deception or ignorance or stupidity. The Bible says that Jesus Christ wants believers in churches to become as perfect as Jesus Christ is perfect, and he perfects them with his grace and power. Please read the lessons from these links: "Be Perfect", "Be Holy." Thank you.
