This church was built for the church community that once lived in the city that was once named Philadelphia. Some 500 years earlier, the church in Philadelphia wasn't a building, but rather, it was a body of believers, and this church of believers in Philadelphia was one of the seven churches discussed in the Book of Revelation.
