Jesus said, “I will build My Church…” There is a single organization that teaches the entire truth of the Bible, and is called to live by “every word of God.” Do you know how to find it? Christ said it would:

  • Teach “all things” He commanded
  • Have called out members set apart by truth
  • Be a “little flock”

Is it proper to address ministers by the title “Reverend”?

In the Bible, the word “reverend” applies to God and God alone. Never does it apply to any man. Psalm 111:9 states, “He [God] sent redemption unto His people: He has commanded His covenant for ever: holy and reverend is His name” (KJV). The word is translated “awesome” in the New King James Version.

You cannot find a single place in the New Testament where Peter, Paul, John, James or any other ministers were ever called “reverend.” In fact, Christ forbids such titles (Matt. 23:9).

The use of religious titles, such as “Reverend,” “Father,” “Your holiness,” etc., began in the first century within religious circles when a great apostasy set in. It was then that ministers started to set themselves up “in place of Christ.” They took it upon themselves to take titles of divinity. God’s true servants today will not use such titles.

However, it is proper for ministers to be called, “Elder,” “Pastor” “Evangelist,” etc., for these are titles used in the New Testament.
