 24E.  The True Church Is The Result Of God's Calling


The Church that measures and lives up to this standard is unquestionably the true Church.  Therefore, regardless of how many Churches there are today, the true Church shall stand alone by uniquely fulfilling this standard of God.  

24E.1    How does God call people in order to be saved?

In Corinthians 1:9, states: 

God is faithful, by whom you were called into the fellowship of His Son, Jesus Christ our Lord. (NKJV)

What calling of God is this? 
It is God's call for people to be in fellowship or union in Christ.

24E.2   How does God call people into the fellowship or union in Christ?   

The Bible answers in II Thessalonians 2:14, thus:

To this he called you through our gospel, so that you may obtain the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ. (Revised Standard)

God's call people by means of the preaching of the Gospel.  

24E.3   Where can we find those who are called by God?

And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to which also you were called in one body; and be thankful.  (Colossians 3:15, NKJV)

Those who are called by God are called in one body. 

24E.4   Which is this body in which God calls for people to be in fellowship or union in Christ?

And he is the head of the body, the church: (Colossians 1:18, KJV)

The body is the Church — the True Church.  The members of this one body or the True Church became such by virtue of God's calling.  

Are those in the body or Church really in union with Christ? 
YES,  because they are joined to Christ being one member his body, with Christ as the head.  

24E.5   What then is the Biblical standard in determining the True Church?

From the foregoing verses it is very clear, then that
the True Church is the result and fruit of God's calling.  Any church, therefore which is not the result of God's calling, is definitely not the True Church for it is not the work of God.
