Charles Spurgeon on Finding the “Perfect Church”

I ran across this quote today by Charles Spurgeon. He once said about finding the perfect church:

“If I had never joined a church till I had found one that was perfect, I should never have joined one at all; and the moment I did join it, if I had found one, I should have spoiled it, for it would not have been a perfect church after I had become a member of it. Still, imperfect as it is, it is the dearest place on earth to us.”

I love our church (that is you, the people). I thank God for you all, and for the fellowship and our labor together in the gospel for the sake of Christ our Savior. My constant prayer is that we would have hearts knit together so tightly, that no distraction or worldly pursuit could restrain or hinder us from loving and serving one another. Perfect…No! Dearest place on earth…I hope so!
