Greetings in Jesus' Name,
The church is a virgin espoused to Jesus Christ. This is a priority we must never lose sight of. As the future bride of Christ, we must be a reflection of the one who has called us into this spiritual kingdom. There are many organizations out there that claim to be a part of the kingdom of God, but there is only one true church. Jesus shared with his disciples what He intended his true church to be. He called, commissioned, and empowered his disciples who became the apostles after the day of Pentecost when the church was endued with power from on high. Therefore, to truly be a part of that future bride of Christ, we must teach the same thing the apostles taught. The true church consists of members that have repented of their sins and have a God given desire to live a holy life before the Lord. They are that espoused bride that has taken on the true name of the Husband. That is why the name of Jesus is called over every person being baptized. Then we can be filled with the Holy Ghost and receive power to truly live a holy life and remain faithful to him. The future is without limit to the person that is willing to be truly apostolic since that person has been promised that which will take all eternity to realize. We invite you to join with us and secure for yourself the future that God has planned for those who love him.
The wonderful thing about being a part of the true church of the living God is that it has a bright future. The church is going up! Although this world is running out of tomorrows, the church has an eternity of tomorrows before her. That is why we must continue to be apostolic in doctrine and uncomprimising in application. The promises to the church only apply to that pure and chaste virgin that will adhere to the doctrine that Jesus gave to his apostles.Come and hear the same gospel that the apostles preached!
I invite you and your family to call if you are in need of prayer. We are prayerfully concerned about you and your problems, and offer ministerial counsel as well as prayer for the sick. If you and your family would like to better understand your Bible, we also offer in-the-home Bible Studies. Our greatest desire is not to have the largest number in attendance or a beautiful church building, but rather to reach the lost; to reach those who have not heard, who have not experienced, and to lead them to receive Jesus Christ. Let us help you come to know the peace and joy that comes with giving your life over to God. Then you can if you wish, bind yourself together with us to build and do a work for the Lord that will last for all eternity.
Thomas J. McNearny
