Bible Characteristics and Contrast of God's Chruch

 It will be necessary to know the true Church of God contrasted with others. We live in a religious and deceiving age. Regardless of one's church name, the beautiful architecture structrue, beautiful robed choir, the singing, praying, preaching, church programs, officers, dignity or disgrace, etc. these can be deceptions to lead men from God. Since these and other things can be so deceiving, then the question arises:

"What are the outstanding Biblical characterisics of the TRUE BIBLE CHURCH? "The Church of God"

Many, people just like you, want to know the truth and be made free (St. John 8:31,32), and not be deceived nor destroyed for a lack of knowledge (Hosea 4:6). We will give you some outstanding characteristics of the true church, which no other church or institution of man has. Which no other ministers or ministries are called to build up, edify or feed (See Acts 20:28, Ephesians 4:11-13).

  1. The church of God is founded and built by the Son of God. (Matthew 16:18; Hebrew 3:3-6; Psalms 127:1.)
  2. The church is led, taught and guided by the Spirit of God. (Roman 8:14; St. John 14:26; 16:13)
  3. It's rule of faith is the Word of God. (Philippians 3:16; St. John 17:8, 14; II Corinthians 4:13)
  4. It is composed of the children of God. (Matthew 13:38 18:3; St. John 3:3,5)
  5. It is named in the family's name. "God" (Ephesians 3:14, 15; St. John 17:11,12; Daniel 9:19)
  6. It was recognized and respected by the apostles of God. "Unto the Church of God" (I Corinthians 1:1,2; II Corinthians 1:1.)  I persecuted the Church of God (Galatians 1:13) "Despise ye the Church of God"  (I Corinthans 11:22) "Give no offense..to the Church of God" (I Corinthians 10:32) "Feed the Church of God" (Acts 20:28)
  7. The chief dominating influence of the church is the peace and love of God. (Romans 5:5; Colossians 3:14, 15; Ephesians 3:17-19; I John 4:16; Galatians 5:6. St. John 13:34, 35)
  8. It is the only church foretold by the prophets of God. (Isaiah 62:2, 56:5; Compare I Timothy 3:15; Daniel 9:19)
  9. It is the only church which has it's headquarters in heaven, the pardise of God, from which the commander in chief, the Son of God issues divine orders. (Hebrew 12:22-25; St. John 10:16, 27, 18:37, Compare Deuteronomy 18:18-20; Genesis 49:10)
  10. The increase growth, etc. is from a divine source:"increase with the increase of God". (Colossians 2:19) Note: Such increase and growth does not come from adding good and bad members into its membership (compare St. John 14:6; 10:9; Roman 5:1,2; Ephesians 2:18)
  11. The Ministry of the church are those chosen, called, ordained, and sent of God. (St. John 15:16)
  12. The only church that presently represent the gospel or grace phase of the kingdom of God. (Mark 9:1, I Corinthians 4:20; Acts 1:8; compare Matthew 16:18,19, 28; Colossians 1:12,14; Luke 16:16) Notice: the Lord Jesus Christ will reign over the present gospel phase of the Kingdom "The Church" until all enemies have been subdued unto him, even death, then he will deliver up all things to the father and even Himself (Christ) will be subject unto the Father that God may be all in all. (I Corinthians 15:24-28) If this teaching is true, and according to the gosel, and doctrine of Christ, then to teach, preach or practice otherwise, or to serve, teach or preach otherwise is heresy and those who are guilty should be rejected after the first and second admonition. (Titus 3:10, 11)
  13. Calling together and cleansing Christ bride (The Church) for his coming. (Eph. 5:25-27, St. John 17:17, Revelation 19:17)

For light and best Spiritual benefit Read each reference carefully and prayerfully. Come out of her (Mystery Babylon) My (GOD'S) People. (Revelation 18:3, II Corinthians 6:14-18, I Timothy 6:3-5)
