Are There Bible Based Churches

Is there any christian evangelical church that's anywhere near the holiness striving, spiritual correctness, spiritualy pure desiring church in Acts today? I've never seen one, if there was, I'd be one of the first to be there, if only to learn from the others the knowledge of Jesus.

Yes Michael that is correct. I believe some time agents of Satan joins churches who are right in their own eyes and do nothing but cause problems.
---Samuelbb7 on 3/4/15


It is possible to be a member in good standing of a church organization, yet be outside the one true Church.
This is because the true Bible Church is not an organization, much less a political state. It is a spiritual body, with a living Head and living members. Again and again Paul, by divine inspiration, calls the Church, the Body of Christ (Rom. 12:5, I Cor. 12:27, Eph. 5:30).

\\Deep down inside to the bottom most part of my heart, I have relied on the KJV. \\

Steveng, even the KJV says that your heart is deceitful and wicked above all things, so that is no recommendation.

Glory to Jesus Christ!

Heb 3:1
Wherefore, holy brethren, partakers of the heavenly calling, consider the Apostle and High Priest of our profession, Christ Jesus,

Heb 4:14
Seeing then that we have a great high priest, that is passed into the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our profession.

Heb 4:15
For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities, but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin.

JESUS is our High Priest before GOD the Father. How?

You answer no scripture Lawrence. You just attack and your words do condemn without scripture to support them.
---Samuelbb7 on 3/2/15


Luke
It's all about Him Jesus Christ, Not ( hims, 3 persons godhead ). Jesus prayed Father, God, Holy Ghost He prayed about Himself. Col.2 v 9. Jesus Christ Is His name.

Samuel
No pride about it. I'm not condemning no one to hell, your condemning yourselves to hell with commandments doctrines of men the 3 persons godhead religion Rev.17 vs 4 5 6 which are many John 10 v 1, Mat.7 v 13. Again it's your choice.

No matter what accusations you's say, the gates of hell shall not prevail against The Acts Church of The Living God.

Glory to God The Father which Is & who Is Jesus Christ.
---Lawrence on 3/1/15




Lawrence, you are telling it like it is, as your church teaches. That when the Father speaks to the Son, He is not really speaking to Him, but what He is doing is speaking to Himself, and He wants us to know that He speaks to Himself. And when the Son speaks to the Father, He is really speaking to Himself also. So both speaking to themselves. And when the Holy Spirit speaks He is also speaking to Himself. All Three speak to themselves.
That is a new teaching not found in the Bible.
---Luke on 2/26/15


Yes Lawrence I believe you have convinced yourself in your pride that you are correct and have the right to take the place of Jesus and condemn others to hell.

But you lack scripture. You do not have the humility to actually try to show you are correct. You are right not because of Scripture but because you are the judge of the earth.


2Corinthians 5:20,21

Now then we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God did beseech you by us: we pray you in Christ's stead, be ye reconciled to God.
For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin, that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.

You see scripture tells me I am saved by what GOD and Jesus did. By Grace. I choose the word of GOD.
---Samuelbb7 on 2/25/15


Samuel
I'm telling like it is.
No condemnation judgement about it.
If I was phony, a joker I'd be telling lies even to compromise with you's.
And I will Not.

God has His Church Acts 2 v 38, few peoples Mat.7 v 14.

2nd.Cor.11 v 14 has his relig orgs churches in Rev.17 vs 4 5 6 many peoples, not every one that says Lord Lord will enter heaven, John 10 v 1, Mat.7 v 13, even j witness, those that worship other dif gods, atheist, agnostics, sexual perverts other etc. Come against The Acts Church of The Living God. The gates of hell shall not prevail against The Acts Church of The Living God.

Glory to God The Father which Is & who Is Jesus Christ..
---Lawrence on 2/25/15


No Lawrence I have never read you say a loving kind word here. Only condemnation and judgment. You take on yourself the prerogative of GOD alone.


John 5:22

For the Father judgeth no man, but hath committed all judgment unto the Son:

You by your words say this scripture is false. You have judged the majority of Christians in the world and seem to delight in them burning in hell for all eternity. Will you enjoy watching little children being tortured without end because you say so?
---Samuelbb7 on 2/23/15

I believe the Seventh day Adventist church teaches correctly. But I know that not all who are members are on fire and living for the Lord like they should.

Jude 1:1

Jude, the servant of Jesus Christ, and brother of James, to them that are sanctified by God the Father, and preserved in Jesus Christ, and called:

Steveng, did you believe in the church of Christ in the New Testiment?
---shira4368 on 10/27/14


Lawrence:

You repeatedly write: Glory to God The Father which who Is Jesus Christ.

It's clear that you are just parroting this, because even after many times saying it, you never noticed the glaring grammatical error in it? i.e. "which who"?
---StrongAxe on 10/26/14


\\ But the only thing we know about you is that you hate denominational church. \\

Don't forget that the Church of Steveng is a worldly denominational church, too.

It might be a worldly denomination of just one congregation that meets in houses, but God is not fooled by externals, even if Steveng is.

Glory to Jesus Christ!

Steven, you say you hear it all the time. you say,
all denomination are created by Satan." Indication you have been to all denominations. What you create is division between the body of Christ. You have no clue what my Church teaches. I have been to many that teach the gospel. Now you might not agree because you have the wrong gospel, and think they are wrong when in fact it is you who is wrong. You wake up to think what else you can say about those denominations you have rebelled against for some reason or another. Whatever you can think of wrong about the Churches you write it down. You don't like what they teach, don't like them collecting money to pay the bills, don't like how they dress, talk, are even when they send missionaries.
---Luke on 10/10/14


Luke wrote: "Can you show us one blog, or one sentence where someone said what you said? In fact you made it up."

I hear it all the time not only at the denominational churches I have helped, but also, denominational christians I meet on the street.

Luke wrote: "We call that lying. Lying is sin. Why don't you take that sin with you to your little church at home?"

You, and others, spread rumors and lies accusing me of the many things that are baltantly false. For years I've been inviting people, or people that they know, who are in my area to know me better. Since you belong to a denominational church, your denomination may have one in my area.
---Steveng on 10/9/14


Steven, you wrote all this:
"Why do most christians refer to the church as a denomination or a building? Just by the way it's used: "I didn't see you in church today," "We have a great pastor at our church," "We have better programs at our church," "We have new sound equipment at our church," "What type of church do you go to?," "I invite you to visit our church," "Try a pentecostal church," "Our church has a great Christmas program," etc.//

Can you show us one blog, or one sentence where someone said what you said? In fact you made it up. We call that lying. Lying is sin. Why don't you take that sin with you to your little church at home?

---Shira4368 on 10/7/14


Lawrence, I did not say that we don't understand but blogs are not text messages. Abbreviations are usually meant for when space is becoming scarce - which does, sometimes, apply here but did not in your case. Certain abbreviations are in very common use, for example etc. instead of etcetera but most words are best written in full unless our word allowance cannot take it. I feel that it is a shame to spoil our language when we have no need to do so.
---Rita_H on 10/5/14


I belong to a bible based church. Everyone who goes to church believes theirs is bible based but I know mine is. The church is the body of Christ but we have to have a meeting place and most call that the church.
---shira4358 on 10/5/14


Why do most christians refer to the church as a denomination or a building?

Denominational christians (counterfeit christians) continually bicker about whose church is better, even within the same denomination. 1 Corinthians 1:10-13 (I am of ...)

Christians ARE the church - NOT a building or a denomination.

Candice I have been attending this Bible Church for 24 years. It is a small church with about 120 members.

We are not perfect but we do strive to know and abide in God's Word in the true context which it is written. This involves asking and answering the questions WHO, WHAT, WHEN, WHERE, WHY, and TO WHOM.

Many people do not like this type of Church because it is not a place where they will have their ears tickled.
---Rob on 8/17/10


Rob what type of church do you go to? Is it a small church? It is interesting to here how others came to their church..
---candice on 8/17/10


There are some Sound Biblical Churches in the world today, but unfortunately they have become very hard to find.

It took me over three years of searching before I found the Bible Church I attend. We take our name from Acts 17:11 and our motto is "GOD'S WORD OUR WALK" even though some of the things in GOD'S WORD hurt for us to read.

When this happens, we know not to change GOD'S WORD to suit ourselves, it is us who needs to change to be inline with GOD'S WORD.

The problem in this and I will look more into Acts on this subject, some churches really believes they are all holiness, but, beware, you must be careful in your dress attire. They frown upon women who wear, for example, slacks in the churches, and a bunch of other rules I suspect, that you must follow.. Really, if God is at the for front and center, then you will have a Bible based church, my friend.

Depends. As far as I have seen going by the bible itself w/o add ons to church doctrines by their denominations then no, but the people themselves want to learn the truth. The problemwith settling in a church home is if you line them upwith everything in the bible & if they go against something in it, then they truly aren't following it 100% but there are rare & few if you find it hold on to it!

The Jews were expelled from England in the mid 1200s. The were allowed to return three hundred years later. Why? The Jews have this knack of prospering wherever they go. After being expelled, England quickly fell into financial ruin. After the Jews returned, England prospered again. Spooky, eh? Or was God in control? Now, if the Jews were only allowed to enter the Arab states, more specifically Iraq and Iran, they wouldn't have finanial problems, would they?

Jack: Deep down inside to the bottom most part of my heart, I have relied on the KJV. King James wanted the Bible to be written so the common folks could read it themselves. He brought together 60 or 90 (I can't remember, old age I suppose) experts and scholars - including Rabbis, Hebrew/Greek linguists, and anyone else he could find to make sure that the Bible was not of one mans interpretation unlike most Bibles today which are interpreted from the KJV.

Jack: Do I know the history of the Bible? You're darn tootin' I do. I studied many of the major religious doctrines during the late 1960s and early 1970s.

And most important about their spiritual lives.

Jack: Reading the Bible from beginning to end - without concordances, novels, Christian opinions, and other reference books - forms a solid foundation of knowing God. By the time you finish the Bible, youll have far less questions than if you jump around the book verse by verse. As an instructor/tutor for over 33 years (California State certified to teach college level courses), we taught students to read the chapter first then go back to study it. It works. The older Jewish people used the same concept.

That to be on fire for God must come from submission, and obidience, and love for all people. alas VERY FEW christians live that life today. ergo most just keep hopping from one church to the next in a vain seach for peace,and a closer relationship with God, instead of seeking God first.

---Jack on 9/11/06


Institutionalized churches today havent scratched the surface of the TRUE meaning of the Bible and developing a true relationship with God. Churches during the first 300 years were small, about twelve in size. They were personal were everyone intimately knew each other. They read the Bible from beginning to end and study portions of it. The members encourage each other to stay strong and live a godly life. If you cant find one, start your own. And, by all means, keep it simple.
