Why do we call ourselves a "lightstand"?
A lightstand (or lampstand) is mentioned in Revelation Chapter 1 when Jesus writes to 7 churches.
Revelation 1:20 says “the seven lampstands are the seven churches”.
A lampstand essentially is a candlestick! A church essentially is a group of Bible believers.
So why did Jesus call these 7 church’s, candlesticks?
Well because a church’s job (a group of Bible believers job) is to shine the Truth of God’s Word (the Bible) to everyone who lives around us.
In other words to let people know about the GOOD NEWS it speaks about.
And this is what we hope to do.
