What Is A Christian?

Few people in this generation have a working knowledge of the Church of Jesus Christ! It is not a building or a denomination, but a creation of God Himself.  The plan of salvation is the manifestation of Gods love for creation. Jesus Christ is the gift of God to mankind. The only true Church is those individuals who have humbled themselves and accepted Jesus Christ as their King, Savior, Lord and Friend! Absent that and call yourself what you will. You are lost and destined to spend eternity in hell.

The church is not a building or even a denomination. Certainly not Catholic, Methodist, Luthern, or Baptist. Also none of the sidebar organizations like Mormon, Jehovah Witness or any fringe groups. When we accept Jesus Christ we have been accepted into His family!

1st Corinthians 1: 12
(12) Now this I say, that every one of you saith, I am of Paul; and I of Apollos; and I of Cephas; and I of Christ.

(13) Is Christ divided? was Paul crucified for you? or were ye baptized in the name of Paul?

(14) I thank God that I baptized none of you, but Crispus and Gaius;

Acts 11: 26
(26) And when he had found him, he brought him unto Antioch. And it came to pass, that a whole year they assembled themselves with the church, and taught much people. And the disciples were called Christians first in Antioch.

God does not see denominations, especially denominations that seek to promote man. Both male and female are promoted to be equal to God in many churches today. One denomination even tries to make deity of the mother of Jesus Christ, it is not so in the Bible.

If we love God with all of our heart and soul and our neighbor as ourselves. We will never commit the crimes against mankind that God hates! But who preaches that in any church today?
