The Organization of the Early Church According to The Acts of the Apostles the church began on the day of the first Pentecost but the need for the development of the church is presented well before its actual creation The gospels of Matthew and John reveal the apostles preparation by Jesus for the coming of the Holy Spirit which is the Pentecost itself The organization and development of the early church is clearly outlined in The Acts of the Apostles 1 Timothy Titus 2 Timothy and 1 Corinthians Through these scriptures the author presents the events of the birth of the church the requirements for the organization of the church and its members and the necessary attributes for both the hierarchy of the church and those of which should be taught to its followers Although the outlined events are written in the sense of fact it must be taken into consideration that these Scriptures are based upon the interpretation thus creating problems in the area of historical reliability In the book of Matthew the apostles receive foreknowledge from Jesus of the building of the church as revealed to Peter but they were not yet told of whom it would be compromised or how it would function Jesus declared And I tell you you are Peter and on this rock I will build my church Matthew1618 in which my church is Greek for the calling in reference to the Holy Spirit Again in the Gospel of John Jesus tells the apostles of the creation of the church in that he would teach them all things But the Counselor the Holy Spirit whom the Father will send in my name will teach you all things and to bring your remembrance all that I have said to you John 1426 Jesus also describes their guidance into all truth through the Holy Spirit I have yet many things to say to you
