Jesus is building His Church! 

His Church is One Big Family!

Jesus is building His Church!

Jesus made a promise and declaration, that He will build His church, and that not even the powers of Hell can stop Him!

Matthew 16:18
And I tell you, you are Peter, and on this rock "I will Build My Church", and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.

He is building His church!

The question is, "Are you part of His Church?"

As a result of there being hundreds or thousands of denominations in this day and age, there is much confusion about what the "One True Church," really is.

If you have a faith relationship with Jesus Christ, (that is to say, the true Jesus of the Scriptures), you are already a member of His Church, which is the One True Church. However, it is very common for a person to be a member of

His Church and still miss out on experiencing it, the way that God

Has designed.

The Scriptures are clear and simple, about His Church:

  1. First, how to become a member of His Church.
  1. Then, how you are to function as a part of the Body of Christ.
  1. Also, where we meet, and what we are to do when we gather together.
  1. In addition to that, Understanding How Important You Are, in the Body of Christ. 5. Finally, knowing how to get along with other members.

On the next page is a chart of the major denominational scisms in Christianity.

According to Wikipedia, the word "denomination" means, "having a name".

The word denomination is used to describe a group of religious people, who are connected with the same name, and the same organization.

Denominations are divided into ten main groups.

Roman Catholic, Eastern Orthodox, Oriental Orthodox, Church of the East, Anglican, Lutheran, Reformed, Anabaptist, Evangelical, and Nontrinitarian.

When you receive Jesus, and believe in His name, He gives you the right to become a child of God!

John 1:9-10
9
The true light, which gives light to everyone, was coming into the world.
10
He was in the world, and the world was made through him, yet the world did not know him.

The question is, "Have you received Jesus, and believed in His name?"

Jesus is building His Church!

Jesus said, that unless you are "Born Again" you cannot "Enter, or even See the Kingdom

of God!"

John 3:1-3
1
Now there was a man of the Pharisees named Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews.
2
This man came to Jesus by night and said to him, “Rabbi, we know that you are a teacher come from God, for no one can do these signs that you do unless God is with him.”
3
Jesus answered him, “Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born again he cannot see the kingdom of God.”

Jesus said to Nicodemus, an old man who was a religious teacher of the Jews, that everyone must be born again to enter the Kingdom of God!

The question is, "Have you been Born Again?"

Jesus also says that you must "Confess Him, before Men!"

Matthew 10:32-33
32
So everyone who acknowledges me before men, I also will acknowledge before my Father who is in heaven,
33
but whoever denies me before men, I also will deny before my Father who is in heaven.

Following Jesus has a cost.

The question is, "Have you confessed, or denied Jesus, before men?"

His Church is one big family; that is, "The Family of God!"

Romans 8:14-15
14
For all who are led by the Spirit of God are sons of God.
15
For you did not receive the spirit of slavery to fall back into fear, but you have received the Spirit of adoption as sons, by whom we cry, “Abba! Father!”

The Scriptures never refer to the church as a place, or a building, or a human institution.

The question is, "Are you a child of God?“ If you are, you are part of His Church!

Jesus is building His Church!

Jesus is the firstborn of many brothers and sisters!

Romans 8:29
For those whom he foreknew he also predestined to be conformed to the image of his Son, in order that he might be the firstborn among many brothers.

When you become a child of God, you have many other brothers and sisters (that is, everyone who has become a child of God).

The question is, "Will you accept them as your brothers and sisters?"

 

Jesus is building His Church!

God has given you a "Measure of Faith!"

Romans 12:3
For by the grace given to me I say to everyone among you not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think, but to think with sober judgment, each according to the measure of faith that God has assigned.

You must not think more highly of yourself than you ought.

The question is, "Will you accept with humility, the measure of faith He has given you?"

Jesus is building His Church!

His church is a living organism made up of all those who have been born of God!

If you are a child of God, you have many other brothers and sisters (that is, everyone who has become a child of God).
