If Denominations Are Okay Then Obeying the Gospel Is Meaningless

A lot of people say that denominationalism is good because you can look for a church that suits you — one that you connect with. However, we are going to see that the existence of denominationalism makes obeying the gospel meaningless.

Obeying the gospel puts one into a special relationship. The Bible is very clear, despite what many teach in denominations, that the redeemed are added to His kingdom after they are washed in the blood of Jesus Christ. Paul taught that we are translated into the kingdom. Colossians 1:13-14 says, “Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son: In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins.” John also added his testimony. He wrote, “I John, who also am your brother, and companion in tribulation, and in the kingdom and patience of Jesus Christ, was in the isle that is called Patmos, for the word of God, and for the testimony of Jesus Christ” (Revelation 1:9). This washing occurs at baptism (Mark 16:16; Hebrews 10:22). The Bible says that there is only body (1 Corinthians 12:13), but being translated into one body means nothing if there are many bodies. Therefore, the existence of denominations makes obeying the gospel meaningless.

The best approach is to go back to the Bible and follow it. People are being lost because they are following the teachings of denominationalism. This is our desire and we would love the opportunity to show you what the Bible teaches about the supreme value of the Lord’s church and the true meaning of obeying the gospel.
