Restoring The Church

Initially Restoring the Church ORGanization was established to call attention to the growing problem of decay and decline of the small community churches of America, plus provide support (tools) and encouragement for their recovery.

Below are comments on how prior to the pandemic,  churches of America were becoming the seven churches mentioned in the Biblical book of Revelation.   However the COVID 19 pandemic has become a top priority of this site, please spend some time looking at COVID 19 pages.

Yet, also please view the failures of the “Seven Churches”. 

The original purpose of Restoring-the-Church.ORG is about encouraging churches to examine themselves and if their church has “left first love” or another reason identified by Christ in his address to the Seven Churches in Revelation they must REPENT and return to CHRIST!

Rev 2:4-5 Nevertheless I have somewhat against thee, because thou hast left thy first love [5] Remember therefore from whence thou art fallen, and repent, and do the first works; or else I will come unto thee quickly and will remove thy candlestick out of his place, except thou repent. (kjv)
