1 Corinthians 5:4

In the name of our Lord Jesus, [when] you are assembled, and my spirit, together with the power of our Lord Jesus,

1 Corinthians 11:17-34

But in giving this instruction I do not praise [you], because you come together not for the better but for the worse. For in the first place, [when you] come together as a church, I hear there are divisions among you, and in part I believe it. For indeed it is necessary that there be factions among you, in order that those who are approved may become evident among you.read more.
Therefore, [when] you come together in the same [place], it is not to eat the Lord's supper. For [when you] eat [it], each one of you goes ahead to take his own supper, and one is hungry and another is drunk. For do you not have houses for eating and drinking? Or do you despise the church of God and humiliate those who do not have [anything]? What shall I say to you? Shall I praise you? In this I will not praise [you]! For I received from the Lord what I also passed on to you, that the Lord Jesus, on the night in which he was betrayed, took bread, and [after he] had given thanks, he broke [it] and said, "This is my body which [is] for you. Do this in remembrance of me." Likewise also the cup, after they had eaten, saying, "This cup is the new covenant in my blood. Do this, as often as you drink [it], in remembrance of me." For as often as you eat this bread and drink this cup, you proclaim the Lord's death until he comes. So then, whoever eats the bread or drinks the cup of the Lord in an unworthy manner will be guilty of the body and the blood of the Lord. But let a person examine himself, and in this way let him eat from the bread and let him drink from the cup. For the one who eats and drinks, [if he] does not recognize the body, eats and drinks judgment against himself. Because of this, many [are] weak and sick among you, and quite a few {have died}. But if we were evaluating ourselves, we would not be judged. But [if we] are judged by the Lord, we are being disciplined, in order that we will not be condemned with the world. So then, my brothers, [when you] come together in order to eat [the Lord's supper], wait for one another. If anyone is hungry, let him eat at home, lest you come together for judgment. And I will give directions about the remaining [matters] whenever I come.

1 Corinthians 14:23

Therefore, if the whole church comes together at the same [time] and all speak with tongues, and outsiders or unbelievers enter, will they not say that you are out of your minds?

1 Corinthians 14:26

{Therefore what should you do}, brothers? Whenever you come together, each one of you has a psalm, has a teaching, has a revelation, has a tongue, has an interpretation. All [things] must be [done] for edification.
