In most churches today you will see five factors: prayer, music, oration (sermon), collection, and benediction. In about AD 150, Justin the Martyr wrote the Emperor Antoninus Pius in defense of the Christian faith and allegiance to Christ:
“And the wealthy among us help the needy... they who are well to do, and willing, give what each thinks fit; and what is collected is deposited with the president, who succours the orphans and widows and those who, through sickness or any other cause, are in want, and those who are in bonds and the strangers sojourning among us, and in a word takes care of all who are in need.” (Ch. 65-67)
The Church had a job and a purpose. It was not merely speakers of the word, but doers. The Eucharist was sacks of grain and loaves of bread freely given to sustain the needy out of love.
We also see the Didache stating: (The Didache mentioned by Eusebius, c.324, Teachings of the Apostles following the books recognized as canonical (Historia Ecclesiastica III, 25).)
“Therefore, elect for yourselves bishops and deacons worthy of the Lord, men who are meek and not lovers of money, true and approved, for they also perform for you the ministry of the prophets and teachers.” Didache 15:1
These ministers were not like the ones we see today. They taught us the message of Christ with real service and loaves of bread like Christ and Moses did in the wilderness. The early Church, even after the divergence of Constantine, still took care of the people through intimate congregations who came together in the thanksgiving, which was called the Eucharist of Christ.
They supported one another through faith, hope, and charity. They would not eat of the civic altars of false benefactors. They stood fast in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made them free. The true Church remained a “pure religion” unspotted by that world.
“Ye cannot drink the cup of the Lord, and the cup of devils: ye cannot be partakers of the Lord’s table, and of the table of devils.” 1 Corinthians 10:21
Psalms 69:22 Let their table become a snare before them: and that which should have been for their welfare, let it become a trap.
Romans 11:9 And David saith, Let their table be made a snare, and a trap, and a stumblingblock, and a recompence unto them:
Chapter 4 verse 9 we see "which ye have both learned, and received, and heard, and seen in me, do: and the God of peace shall be with you." can only mean that if we do not "do" then God of peace shall not be with you. We need be doers of the word.

1 ¶ Paul and Timotheus, the servants[1] of Jesus Christ, to all the saints[2] in Christ Jesus which are at Philippi, with the bishops[3] and deacons: 2 Grace be unto you, and peace, from God our Father, and from the Lord Jesus Christ.

3 ¶ I thank[4] my God upon every remembrance of you, 4 Always in every prayer of mine for you all making request[5] with joy, 5 For your fellowship [6] in the gospel from the first day until now; 6 Being confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ:

7 ¶ Even as it is meet[7] for me to think this of you all, because I have you in my heart; inasmuch as both in my bonds, and in the defence and confirmation of the gospel, ye all are partakers of my grace. 8 For God is my record, how greatly I long after you all in the bowels of Jesus Christ.

9 ¶ And this I pray, that your love may abound yet more and more in knowledge and in all judgment; 10 That ye may approve things that are excellent; that ye may be sincere and without offence till the day of Christ; 11 Being filled with the fruits of righteousness[8], which are by Jesus Christ, unto the glory and praise of God.

12 ¶ But I would ye should understand, brethren, that the things which happened unto me have fallen out rather unto the furtherance of the gospel; 13 So that my bonds in Christ are manifest in all the palace, and in all other places; 14 And many of the brethren in the Lord, waxing confident by my bonds, are much more bold to speak the word without fear. 15 Some indeed preach Christ even of envy and strife; and some also of good will: 16 The one preach Christ of contention, not sincerely, supposing to add affliction to my bonds: 17 But the other of love, knowing that I am set for the defence of the gospel. 18 What then? notwithstanding, every way, whether in pretence, or in truth, Christ is preached; and I therein do rejoice, yea, and will rejoice. 19 For I know that this shall turn to my salvation through your prayer, and the supply of the Spirit of Jesus Christ, 20 According to my earnest expectation and my hope, that in nothing I shall be ashamed, but that with all boldness, as always, so now also Christ shall be magnified in my body, whether it be by life, or by death.

21 ¶ For to me to live is Christ, and to die is gain. 22 But if I live in the flesh, this is the fruit of my labour: yet what I shall choose I wot not. 23 For I am in a strait betwixt two, having a desire to depart, and to be with Christ; which is far better: 24 Nevertheless to abide in the flesh is more needful for you. 25 And having this confidence, I know that I shall abide and continue with you all for your furtherance and joy of faith; 26 That your rejoicing may be more abundant in Jesus Christ for me by my coming to you again.

27 ¶ Only let your conversation[9] be as it becometh the gospel of Christ: that whether I come and see you, or else be absent, I may hear of your affairs, that ye stand fast in one spirit, with one mind striving together for the faith of the gospel; 28 And in nothing terrified by your adversaries: which is to them an evident token of perdition, but to you of salvation, and that of God. 29 For unto you it is given in the behalf of Christ, not only to believe on him, but also to suffer for his sake;

30 Having the same conflict which ye saw in me, and now hear to be in me.
