Who Church Are You A Member Of?

Serious Question: "Who Church Are You A Member Of??"


Shared by Apostle James R Winfree Sr, Making The Truth Of Jesus Christ Known:


When one gives all their time, resources, services, and worship to cold lifeless dead hands built buildings, they are Not pleasing God in Christ Jesus.


Here we go into God's Holy Word: The World and so many Christians today understand the Church as a building. This is not the biblical understanding of the Church that Jesus Christ Himself Built. The word “church” comes from the Greek word ekklesia which is defined as “an assembly” or “called-out ones.” The root meaning of “church” is not that of a building, but of people. It is ironic that when you ask people what church they attend, they usually identify a building or their personal religion. Romans 16:5 says “… greet the church that is in their house.” Apostle Paul refers to the church is those of us who are truly really born again, not a church building, but a body of Christ Jesus Believers.


The church is the body of Christ, of which He is The Head. Ephesians 1:22-23 says, “And God placed all things under his feet and appointed him to be head over everything for the church, which is his body, the fullness of him who fills everything in every way.” The body of Christ is made up of all believers in Jesus Christ from the day of Pentecost (Acts chapter 2) until Christ’s return. The body of Christ is comprised of born-again believers in the Lord Jesus Christ: 


 The universal church consists of all those who have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. “For we were all baptized by One Spirit into One body, whether Jews or Greeks, slave or free, Blacks or Whites, Rich Or Poor, and we were all given the One Spirit to drink” (1 Corinthians 12:13). This verse says that anyone who is born again is part of the body of Christ and has received the Spirit of Christ as evidence. The universal church of God in Jesus Christ is all those who have received salvation through faith in Jesus Christ.


 The word local church is Not Biblical... Galatians 1:1-2: “ Apostle Paul, an Apostle … and all the brothers with me, to the churches of Galatia.” Here we see that in the province of Galatia there were many church believers, what so many calls local churches is Not found in the Bible at all. A Baptist church, Lutheran church, a Catholic church, etc., is not the church, as in the universal church, but rather is a local building made by men hands, a local group body of believers is correct. The universal church is comprised of those who belong to Christ and who have trusted Him for salvation. These members of the universal church should seek fellowship and edification in the Lord Jesus Christ Church wherever they meet at.


I am making the truth of Jesus Christ known, the Church is not a Building or a Denomination or Religion. According to the Bible, the Church is the body of Christ Believers and His Followers all those who have placed their faith in Jesus Christ for salvation ( John 3:16; ) ( 1 Corinthians 12:13 ).Today's  Local churches are gatherings of business club members of the get rich self-interest universal church. The local church is where the members of the universal church can fully be used by its leaders to get wealthy off of and serve their fleshly needs.....Apostle Paul said it best..1 Corinthians chapter 12: encouraging, teaching, and building one another up in the knowledge and grace of the Lord Jesus Christ. and being a blessing to one another as spiritual brothers and sisters in the faith of grace in love. Amen His Living and Loving True Church
