The Three Fold Church

1Cor 1:10  Now I beseech you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that ye all speak the same thing, and that there be no divisions among you; but that ye be perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgment.

This is a church that has attained to a same level of understanding and discernment within its parishioners.  Active discipleship, healing, and equipping of the saints produced this.  Consequently this congregation now operates within the same opinions, purposes, resolves, and decision making.

Philippians 1:27 Only let your conversation be as it becometh the gospel of Christ: that whether I come and see you, or else be absent, I may hear of your affairs, that ye stand fast in one spirit, with one mind striving together for the faith of the gospel.

Literally a “one soul” church.  The spirit of sacrifice and agape love, which is always divine and sacrificial in nature, has controlled this congregation.  The whole assembly with one will, and one set of emotions, athletically agonizes for the faith of the gospel.

Acts2:46  And they, continuing daily with one accord in the temple, and breaking bread from house to house, did eat their meat with gladness and singleness of heart.

Literally “the one burning passion church”.

One accord is a political term that denotes a unanimous decision or vote for one candidate.  A political party puts all of its support behind its man or woman.  Multitudes raise their hands to vote the same way, because of its harmony of heart, and zeal for their cause.  The party sacrifices personal interest in view of the larger cause held by the whole organization.  The church in one accord votes for its candidate Jesus Christ, and His cause, and with all passion and ardor follows Him sacrificing all else.
