πŸ’‘πŸ‘‘ What Is The True Bible Church?

Many people have truly come to know Christ as Savior after having been sincere, religious β€œchurch members” for years. Though faithful supporters of some earthly church organization they had never experienced the truth of II Cor. 5:17: β€œIf any man be in Christ he is a new creation.” It is possible to be a member in good standing of some church organization, yet be outside of the one true Church of which the Bible speaks.

This is because the true Bible Church is not an organization but a living organism, a spiritual body, with a living Head and living members. Again and again St. Paul, by divine inspiration, calls the Church, the Body of Christ. He says: β€œWe being many, are one Body in Christ…” (Rom. 12:5). β€œYe are the Body of Christ, and members in particular” (I Cor. 12:27). β€œWe are members of His Body” (Eph. 5:30).

How do we become members of this true Bible Church, the Body of Christ? First, we must acknowledge ourselves to be sinners in God’s sight, for Ephesians 2 relates how Christ died for sinful men that He might β€œreconcile” them to God β€œin one Body” by the cross (Eph. 2:16). Thus, when believing sinners are reconciled to God by faith in Christ, they are regenerated, given a new life, by the Spirit, and by the Spirit are baptized into the Church, the Body of Christ.

β€œNot by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to His mercy He saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Spirit” (Titus 3:5).

β€œFor by one Spirit are we all baptized into one body” (I Cor. 12:13).

Every one of us should ask himself: β€œHave I been baptized by the Spirit into the Body of Christ?” If not, trust Christ as your Savior and become a member of the one true Bible Church. Then associate yourself with some local assembly where Christ is honored and the Bible taught, β€œrightly divided.” source
