A minister, like true Christians
in any profession: even if preaching the Gospel next to their main
jobs, is a disciple of Christ who has been called by
Christ him self (John
15:16) "... for ye have not chosen me but I have
chosen you and
ordained you before the foundation of the earth". Not to only
be a believer but, step out of the world, surrender his life to him,

Nowhere in the bible can

churches of Nicolatian nature.
Living stones: Peter
in Matthew 16: 13-19 was called 'petros' ( a stone ) by Christ, whom
proceeded to refer to himself, The Christ, as the rock he shall built
