Which Church Is The True Church Of God?

by: Britt Gillette

Which church is the one true church of God? This is one of most debated questions in human history. While searching for truth, many people have struggled with this question. Literally thousands of churches, denominations, and religious organizations throughout the world and throughout history have laid claim to the title "the one true church of God." Even today, many people remain convinced their denomination is the anointed one of God. As a result, it's not difficult to see how people can easily become frustrated in regard to this question.

So how does a person searching for truth find the one true church? With so many options - Catholics, Baptists, Methodists, Presbyterians, Episcopalians, Lutherans, Seventh Day Adventists, Jehovah's Witnesses, and literally thousands of alternatives, the average Christian can not reasonably be expected to examine the tenets of each and every one. Yet each of these groups harbors a certain number of adherents who believe their church is the "one true church of God," while all other groups are inferior or even outright evil. Some even promote such a declaration as their official position. In light of these circumstances, many will honestly wonder: does a "one true church of God" exist? And if it does, where is it?

To find the answer, one needs to consult the definitive authority on the matter - the bible, the very Word of God Himself. According to the bible, the one true church of God does exist, but it can't be identified by man-made tradition or human declaration or doctrines or rules. And it doesn't gather in a single building every Sunday. Such ideas are worldly conceptions of what the church should be.

The one true church of God is comprised of various individuals from every walk of life, who live in a multitude of places stretching from one end of the earth to the other. Each of these individuals is a part of the body of Christ, and the very Spirit of Jesus Christ resides in their hearts.

One of the problems with identifying the one true church of God is that not all people who call themselves Christians are really Christians. The Lord Jesus Himself revealed that on the Day of Judgment, many will claim they lived their lives for Christ but will be exposed as "Christians" in name only:

"Not everyone who calls out to me, ‘Lord! Lord!' will enter the Kingdom of Heaven. Only those who actually do the will of my Father in heaven will enter. On judgment day many will say to me, ‘Lord! Lord! We prophesied in your name and cast out demons in your name and performed many miracles in your name.' But I will reply, ‘I never knew you. Get away from me, you who break God's laws.'" Matthew 7:21-23 (NLT)

Who are these people? These are people who use Christ's name here on earth for their own purposes, be it to acquire fame, wealth, adulation, or some other selfish ambition. Yet these same people actually reject Christ in their hearts.
