dc.description.abstractA church performs many functions. It presents an image; prepares the believer for worship; introduces the unbeliever to God; facilitates worship services; projects the words of the pastor; resonates the music of the choir and orchestra; deepens knowledge and understanding of the faith; instructs children as well as adults; promotes fellowship; shelters the needy; hosts meetings; serves meals; strengthens families; supports missions and ministries; and accommodates weddings, funerals, and baptisms. These functions are performed in obedience to the Word of God. They are expressions of Scripture. In the past, the church building itself expressed Scripture. The cruciform plan of the great cathedrals was the most profound example, depicting the symbol of Christianity. Clerestory windows filled the vaulted heights above the nave with heavenly light. Mosaics, reliefs, icons and stained glass windows illustrated biblical stories. How else can the architecture of the church building express Scripture? How can Scripture inspire architecture?en
