The One True church

1. If the Bible says there is now only one baptism, would you believe it? (Ephesians 4:5) states it to be so. There’s no Holy Spirit baptism now, that’s gone. There’s no walking in Moses’ baptism. No one undergoes John’s baptism. We can’t be baptized with fire these days. We certainly don’t experience the baptism of the cross. However, we are baptized for the remission of sins, (Romans 6:4-6, Acts 2:38, 1 Peter 3:21). So that means we have to be baptized to have our sins washed away. God said. Jesus said. The Holy Spirit said. The Bible does say.

2. What if I told you there is truly only one body. (Ephesians 4:4) states it so. It means there is just one church; it’s the church Jesus promised to build, (Matthew 16:18). Paul speaks of the body of Christ.

3. There is just one church but many members, (Romans 12:5).

4. Jesus is head of the body, the church, His church, (Ephesians 1:21-23).

5. The one true church follows it’s head, Jesus, There are no new laws, there is no changing of what’s given in the Bible, there’s no adding to, and there’s no deleting of New Testament verses or thoughts, (Revelation 22:18-19).

6. The one true church, Jesus’ church is not divided into denominations, (1 Corinthians 1:10, Romans 16:17).

7. The one true church completes 3 tasks: Preaching, Edifying, Benevolence. Preaching (Romans 10:14-17), Edifying (Ephesians 4:12-13), Benevolence (1 Corinthians 16:1, 1 Timothy 5:3-16, James 1:27).

8. Benevolence as an act of the church is toward Saints who are in distress. The church is not a charitable institution to the world. Each Christian though has the responsibility to help non-saints in distress, (Luke 10:27-37).

9. The building up of the body, edifying, takes place as the church studies the scriptures, (2 Timothy 2:15, Ephesians 4:11-16).

10. Jesus adds to His church the ones truly saved according to God’s plan of salvation, (Acts 2:41, 47).
