The Bible teaches that there is one God (Deuteronomy 6:4) who is spirit (John 4:24) who cannot be seen or approached by man, for the salvation of man God manifested in human flesh (body),revealed in his union nature calling himself as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. (Colossians 2:9) “For in Christ dwells all the fullness of the Godhead bodily”. God called himself as FATHER because he is the Creator of everything and everyone. (Isaiah 26:4 & I Corinthians 10:4) The same God called himself as SON because he is the Saviour of mankind, manifested in flesh (1 Timothy 3:16) i.e., born a man by a virgin birth and was crucified, buried and resurrected, purchased and established his church (Acts 20:28) and that he will return again for judgment when his Father determines the time for history to end. God calls all people to follow him and accept the teaching that Jesus Christ is the one mediator between God and mankind. (Matthew 28:20) The same God called himself as HOLY SPIRIT because in his Resurrected body he is in Heaven now and in his Spirit he is in earth now, he is the guiding Spirit of the Church to grow spiritually. Believers are redeemed from judgment when they accept this teaching and follow the guidelines for holy living as explained in the Bible.
Bible teaches that there were three types of ages of the world namely 1. Patriarchal age beginning from Genesis. 2. Mosaic age beginning from Exodus to Death of Christ. 3. Christ age beginning from Christ resurrection to his second coming. The Believers of Patriarchal age called the one true God as “God Almighty” Exodus 6:3. The Believers of Mosaic age called the one true God as “YHWH” Exodus 6:3. The Believers of Christ age called the one true God as “JESUS CHRIST” Isaiah 9:6; Romans 9:5; Titus 2:13; I John 5:20. You Christian please understand that you belong only to the Christ age, then without doubt call your God by name – Lord Jesus Christ (I Corinthians 1:2).
(John 1:12) As many as received Jesus Christ, to them he gave the right to become Children of God, to those who believe in his NAME i.e., JESUS CHRIST. (John 20:31) The purpose of the New Testament was written ONLY to the Children of God and nobody else because they may believe that Jesus is the Christ and believing they may have Eternal life in the NAME of Jesus Christ.
(Acts 11:26) The disciples were called Christians. Then the question will arise that who were the disciples. Disciples were believers of the Lord’s Church (Matthew 16:18) established on 50th day of resurrection of Jesus Christ, in 33 A.D. in Jerusalem by the Apostles of Jesus Christ who the only were authorised to baptize and make disciples of Jesus Christ. First disciples about 3000 were baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and the Lord added them to the Church (Acts 2:38, 41, 47). This is the only original pattern of discipleship was followed in entire New Testament church history (Acts 4:4; 5:14; 6:7; 8:12-17; 10:47, 48; 11:24; 18:8-10) and many more.
The Epistles of the New Testament were written only to disciples who were baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ. For example Church at Romans 6:3; Church at 1 Corinthians 1:13; Church at Galatians 3:27; Church at Ephesians (Acts 19:1-5); Church at Philippians 2:10, 11 (Acts 16:15; 16:33); Church at Colossians 3:17 and many more. Above shown disciples were called Christians and if you are bold enough to follow the only original pattern of discipleship of baptism (Ephesians 4:5) then you will be blessed to be called as Christians.
We consider ourselves non-denominational. All congregations of The Lord’s Church are autonomous, but they are connected to one another by agreement on matters of doctrine and practice. However, The Lord’s Church has no central headquarters which regulates the practice of individual churches. The Lord Jesus Christ is the founder & head of this Church.
