Can Any Church Claim to Be the True Biblical Church?
There are so many denominations of Christian churches in the world, all with different doctrines and beliefs. How can each one of them claim that they have the truth? How can they all claim that they are the true church? Some of these churches are surely wrong. That is a fact!
The World Mission Society Church of God (WMSCOG) is one of those churches that claims to teach the truth and be the true Biblical church. Ahnsahnghong, who is from South Korea, founded the Church of God. How can the Church of God prove its claim?
If the WMSCOG has different teachings and doctrines than other churches, like the Catholic Church or Baptist Church, are the other churches false churches? I was raised in many Baptist churches and many members of my family attend either Baptist Churches or Catholic Churches. So after first coming to the Church of God, I had to know the answer.
Is the WMSCOG a Biblical Church?
Looking at the words from Jesus Christ, we can get an idea of how to prove or disprove the claim of the WMSCOG and Ahnsahnghong.
Matthew 7:24 – Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock. The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house; yet it did not fall, because it had its foundation on the rock.
The church that puts into practice all the words from Jesus Christ should be the true Biblical Church. If they fail to follow His teachings, they are disqualified.
Why is this an important debate? As believers in Christ, we want to receive salvation and salvation comes from Christ. If a church claims they deliver the teachings of Christ but they do not, we should know. With that said, let’s examine the claims of the WMSCOG and see if they are the true church or a false church. I found this video online which explains about the teachings in the Bible of the Church of God established by Jesus.
Evidence from the Bible
After Watching the Video
We can see through this video that the Church of God Jesus established has certain characteristics. That church kept the following:
- New Covenant Passover (Luke 22:20, 1 Cor 11:23-26)
- Worship service on the Sabbath Day (Luke 4:16, Acts 17:2)
- Baptism (Matthew 3:16, Acts 2:38)
- Veil covering for women (1 Cor 11:1)
To my surprise, the teachings of church Jesus established are exactly the same teachings that the WMSCOG follows. I have never seen any Catholic Churches keeping the Sabbath, nor seen any Baptist churches keeping the Passover. None of the churches I had attended ever advised the women to wear veils during worship so that they could honor God. The only somewhat consistent teaching across the churches is baptism, yet they fail to baptize correctly in the name of the Holy Spirit.
Based on these four (4) teachings, the World Mission Society Church of God is the true Biblical Church unlike the Catholic Church, Baptist Church or others that don’t follow these teachings, one of which is in the 10 commandments.
Exodus 20:8 – “Remember the Sabbath day by keeping it holy.”
Please consider these points seriously and find the church that truly follows God.
