Certainly, the Apostle Paul was a central figure for building up the Church. Yet, all believers share in that role of building up one another. “According to the grace of God which is given unto me [Paul], as a wise masterbuilder, I have laid the foundation, and another buildeth thereon.

One of the great teachings Jesus Christ presented in his earthly ministry is found in Matthew 5. Many call it the sermon on the mount.
