Today, there are so many different denominations that people wonder wether the true church of Christ still exists in this era.
In fact, not only Churches but different teachings among the denominations each claiming to be teaching the true Gospel of Jesus Christ.
The Bible warned us that in the future many will turn away from the true Gospel of Christ, and rather teach doctrines of demons.
The Bible makes it clear that there is right doctrine and wrong doctrine, and salvation is achieved only through adherence to the right doctrine.
Believers are entreated to guard against false doctrines, and to also rebuke any teachings that contradict biblical Christianity. Having biblical sound doctrine allows us to maximize our capacity to worship God.
If your Pastor does not teach the doctrines below, run away from that church:
The Orthodox Church teaches that God is one but exists in three persons. The Father is God, the Son is God and the Holy Spirit is God yet there's one God and not three. No Christian believe there are three Gods. Believing in three Gods is a deviation from orthodox Christianity.
2. The deity of Christ
One of the most important doctrines in Christianity is the divinity of Christ Jesus. The Bible teaches that God revealed himself in the person of Jesus Christ. He humbled himself like a servant even unto the point of death on the cross. Denying the deity of Christ means denying biblical Christianity.
3. Faith Alone
The Bible teaches that faith alone in Christ Jesus is a requirement for salvation. The believer is saved only through faith alone in Christ Jesus, and not necessarily his good works.
4. The crucifixion
The Crucifixion is one of the important doctrines in Christology. The Bible teaches that Christ died on the cross for us while we were still sinners.
The resurrection is the centre of Christianity. The Bible teaches that without the resurrection the christian faith is futile. You cannot be a Christian without believing in the resurrection of Christ.
Satan, knowing he has lost power over believers is now trying hard to infiltrate the Church with incorrect doctrines. It's essential as a Christian to adhere to the above doctrines so as to avoid being driven away from sound biblical teachings.
