Bible Truth FAQs
WHICH CHURCH THE LORD ADDS TO
This question is purposely clothed in everyday street language to call attention to the plain Bible fact that the Lord does add the saved to the church. On the first Pentecost following the resurrection it is recorded (Acts 2:47) that the Lord added to the church daily such as should be saved. Does anyone ever wonder, which church?
Christ promised to build only one church (Matt. 16:18). He referred to it as "MY CHURCH," singular in number and belonging to him. The only plural use of the word is to denote different locations of the body of Christ, not different kinds of churches. The various religious groups we know today came into existence through human efforts a great many years later. These are all human organizations not formed by Christ and not belonging to him.
Christ added then, and still does, to his church, the church of Christ, the only church you can read about in the Bible.
