The Church of Jesus Christ

A PERSON MAY IDENTIFY THE CHURCH
BY THE NAME IT IS CALLED

The devil has deceived many people to believe that there is nothing OF IMPORTANCE in any name.

If it is true, why should God command Adam to name things? (Genesis 2.19,20.) God changed Jacob’s name to Israel. (Genesis 35.10.)

But here are several valid scriptural names by which you can identify the church:

The church of the Lord. (Acts 20.28.)
The church of God. (1Corinthians1.2.)
The house of God; the church of the living God. (1 Timothy 3.15.)
The church. (Acts 11.22.)
The church of Christ. (Romans 16.16.)
The church of the city of…

  1. Scott says:

    Hey friend,

    When did Christ sanctify and cleanse the Church by the washing of water with the word in Ephesians 5:26? Why is there only one baptism in Ephesians 4:5?

    ( Note taking isolated verses of scripture for study, review is generally still a very bad practise..)

  2. “I bathed you with water and washed the blood from you and put ointments on you. I clothed you with an embroidered dress and put leather sandals on you. I dressed you in fine linen and covered you with costly garments. I adorned you with jewelry: I put bracelets on your arms and a necklace around your neck, and I put a ring on your nose, earrings on your ears and a beautiful crown on your head. So you were adorned with gold and silver; your clothes were of fine linen and costly fabric and embroidered cloth. Your food was fine flour, honey and olive oil. You became very beautiful and rose to be a queen. And your fame spread among the nations on account of your beauty, because the splendor I had given you made your beauty perfect, declares the Sovereign Lord.” (Ezekiel 16:9-14)

    “Do you not know that the wicked will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor male prostitutes nor homosexual offenders nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God. And that is what some of you were. But you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God.” (1 Corinthians 6:9-11)

  3. The meaning of “one baptism” in (Eph 4:5 KJV) One Lord, one faith, one baptism,

    and whether it refers to water or Spirit baptism has been much debated through the years, and although there are exceptions, the scholarly consensus is that this refers to water baptism. Its is generally understood that one water baptism is all that is required of every person

    Have you been personally Baptized in the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit with Water and also next with the Holy Ghost as well? and do you manifest the spiriyal Gifts now as well?

    (John 13:10 KJV) Jesus saith to him, He that is washed needeth not save to wash his feet, but is clean every whit: and ye are clean, but not all.

    (John 13:11 KJV) For he knew who should betray him; therefore said he, Ye are not all clean.

    and there is still only one Person who Baptizes each of us with the Holy Spirit.. and it is Jesus Christ , God himself

    (Acts 10:38 KJV) How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with power: who went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed of the devil; for God was with him. 39 And we are witnesses ..

    (Mat 3:11 KJV) I indeed baptize you with water unto repentance: but he that cometh after me is mightier than I, whose shoes I am not worthy to bear: he shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost, and with fire:

    (Luke 3:16 KJV) John answered, saying unto them all, I indeed baptize you with water; but one mightier than I cometh, the latchet of whose shoes I am not worthy to unloose: he shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost and with fire:

    (Acts 1:8 KJV) But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.

    (Acts 2:38 KJV) Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.

    (Acts 2:4 KJV) And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.

    (Acts 4:31 KJV) And when they had prayed, the place was shaken where they were assembled together; and they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and they spake the word of God with boldness.

    (1 Th 1:5 KJV) For our gospel came not unto you in word only, but also in power, and in the Holy Ghost, and in much assurance; as ye know what manner of men we were among you for your sake.

    (1 John 5:7 KJV) For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one.

    and anyone who knows me knows that I strongfully, rigthfully do believe that dispensationalist Christians are mostly trouble makers like the apostle Judas who are rather going to hell with him too .. http://wordpress.com/tag/dispensationalists/
