Bible Truth FAQs


Of course you can join a religious institution. One of the most common pleas of those professing so-called Christianity is, "Join the church of your choice." Does the idea of joining ANY church carry any scriptural authority? You will not find it in the Bible. Why is this?

In the first place, Christ did not build a multiplicity of churches so that a choice could be offered. He built only ONE (Matt. 16:18}. "My church" denotes singular in number and the rightful ownership. In Acts 20:28 it is stated that he {Christ} purchased the church with his own blood. Here again, "The Church" denotes singular in number and rightful ownership through the purchase price -- his blood.

In the second place, membership in his church is available, but you can't join. In Acts 2:41 it is recorded, "Then they that gladly received his word were baptized, and the same day there were ADDED unto them about three thousand souls." Further, in verse 47 it is said, "...And the Lord ADDED to the church daily such as should be saved."

If you are "such as should be saved," let the Lord ADD you to the church of HIS CHOICE -- the one he built, the one he died for. He is not mistaken about which one is his!
