Introduction perhaps one of the most influential characteristics of the local church is the mission or the work that it undertakes therefore it is essential that we study the bible teaching on this topic so that we may be able to determine if a local church is even trying to do its god given task. The church existed before there were any schools or colleges giving children a secular education is the duty of parents but it is not the work of the church the church of christ as planned by divinity has no youth camps it does not own them or operate them camping is not the work of the church. Theres no way for me to know the truth but if a christian truly believes its the churchs job to care for the poor i would hope that theyre giving sacrificially i mean if youre a christian who wants to argue with me that poverty is the sole responsibility of the church youd better be giving your fair share. The work of the church is prescribed in scripture paul told timothy i write so that you may know how you ought to conduct yourself in the house of god which is the church of the living god 1 timothy 315 the work of the church is done by its members. Helping the poor is whose responsibility helping the poor is a command from god charity work has always been an important part of christian life in joppa there was a disciple named tabitha which when translated is dorcas who was always doing good and helping the poor
