Regarding Denominational Entities and the Church

A little perspective regarding denominations and their entities, conventions, seminaries, and religious universities: The church is often confused with the entities and organizations meant to serve and facilitate the purpose of the church, but that are not the church.  

As important as conventions, denominational entities, seminaries, and universities are, and as valuable as they can be, God is about the church. Conventions will end. Denominational entities will end. Seminaries and universities will end. Their days will conclude. 

Not so the church. It is the church for which Jesus died. It is the church against which the gates of hell will not prevail. And in the end, it is the church that will be at the wedding supper.
