Ephesians 2:19-22

Consequently, you are no longer foreigners and aliens, but fellow-citizens with God's people and members of God's household, built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, with Christ Jesus himself as the chief cornerstone. In him the whole building is joined together and rises to become a holy temple in the Lord. And in him you too are being built together to become a dwelling in which God lives by his Spirit. [NIV]

Joined to be filled.

The church is designed to be filled with the Spirit. We are joined together with a purpose; together we are filled with God and reflect his nature.

Apostles and prophets are foundational ministries for the Spirit-filled church the way God designed it to be. We can no more do without them than we can do without the cornerstone himself!
