A church that requires membership is a false doctrine

The way a person becomes a member (individual part) of the Body of Christ is to be baptized into it by the Holy Spirit. This is a one time event that happens at the point of our "born again"  experience.


The Apostle Paul speaks for God writing,  "You are One body and one Spirit, just as you were called to One hope when you were called; One Lord, One faith, ONE BAPTISM; One God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all".  This is how a person becomes a member of the Body of Christ. Church membership is a One Time Event. God is all about Oneness and Unity. Just like the Holy Trinity is One. Requiring church membership is a ploy church leaders use to establish control over their members to achieve their own self serving agenda. The church (Body of Christ) is not a Country Club that requires man made membership. Don't buy into this lie under any circumstances.

  

“Again you have heard that it was said to those of old, ‘You shall not swear falsely, but shall perform your oaths to the Lord.’ But I say to you, do not swear at all: neither by heaven, for it is God’s throne; nor by the earth, for it is His footstool; nor by Jerusalem, for it is the city of the great King. Nor shall you swear by your head, because you cannot make one hair white or black. But let your ‘Yes’ be ‘Yes,’ and your ‘No,’ ‘No.’ For whatever is more than these is from the evil one."


Have you ever been spiritually baptized into the Body of Christ?
