The Church of Jesus Christ is an international and independent Christian religious denomination headquartered in Monongahela, Pennsylvania, United States. The Church of Jesus Christ is a Christian Restorationist church, the 3rd largest church to believe in the Book of Mormon as scripture, and is historically part of the Latter Day Saint church considers itself the Gospel Restored Classification: Restorationist, Latter Day Saint movement.   Even within the most widespread “Church of Christ” association, which is the “Church of Christ” that came out of the Restoration Movement, there can be significant differences among the churches. There is no doubt that many in the Church of Christ group are genuine believers in Christ who desire to truly worship, follow, and obey Him.

What does it mean that the church is the body of Christ? The concept of the "body of Christ" is often used in the New Testament to refer to the church. The exact phrase "body of Christ" is used three times. First Corinthians states, "The cup of blessing that we bless, is it not a participation in the blood of Christ?   What my membership in the Church means to me. It means family to me. It is something that is in me that I can’t just up and leave. I can’t deny that it’s the place for me, which is really annoying at the times I can’t stand to be there. It points out to me with annoying clarity my weaknesses, shortcomings and failures.

  Christ lives in me. The life you see me living is not “mine,” but it is lived by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me. (Gal. , MSG) When we abide in Christ, God lives and moves in us and through us. Then it’s not us anymore who do good works. It’s Christ in us. THE CORRECT MEANING OF "CHURCH" AND "ECCLESIA" Let us make it clear from the very beginning that the established religious system, which manifests itself in the abomination called "church", is NOT of God. We intend to make it very clear, by studying the Greek words found in the New Testament, that the pattern which God intends His people to follow and live by is the ECCLESIA .

Come, Follow Me: Book of Mormon Easter (March 30–April 12) On Easter, we celebrate “the most important day in history” 1 —the Resurrection of our Savior Jesus Christ.

On Easter, we celebrate “the most important day in history” 1 —the Resurrection of our Savior Jesus Christ. This event is central to Heavenly Father’s plan of happiness.

I feel that the church is something we cannot define, for it has many meanings. What Jesus Means to Me Jesus—perhaps the most discoursed name in history.

He has transformed and influenced many lives including mine. To some people, He was a prophet. To others He is a mere legend. To me, he is a father and a friend, but most of all, He is my Lord and Savior through justification, sanctification, and redemption.

The book of Acts tells us the early history of the Christian Church. In A Barnabas and Saul (later called Paul) spent a year in Antioch at the beginning of Paul’s ministry.

“For a whole year they assembled with the church and taught a great many people” (verse 26). Just as God’s mission includes the Church of Jesus Christ, so the Church of Jesus Christ includes my local church.

My local church is indeed the mystical body of Christ, but it is not all of the mystical body of Christ. The ancient creeds described the.

What Is the Church, and What Does It Mean to Me. What is the church. Church is about identity. The church is more than a place or an institution; it’s the group of people who have been saved. Jesus, the Christ, promised to build His church. (Matthew ) Notice that He built only one church (see Ephesians ).

God tries to explain what the Church should mean to us in the Bible passages through the apostles and people he has sent down to proclaim His word. During the Last Supper, Jesus took the bread, broke it and said, "This is my body, which will be given for you; do this in memory of me.".

The word "church" is mentioned more than times in the New Testament. It is translated from the Greek term ekklesia which is formed from two Greek words meaning "an assembly" and "to call out" or "the called out ones." The New Testament church is a body of believers that has been called out from the world by God to live as his people under the authority of Jesus Christ.

“Christ” comes from the Greek word Christos, meaning “anointed one” or “chosen one.” This is the Greek equivalent of the Hebrew word Mashiach, or “Messiah.” “Jesus” is the Lord’s human name given to Mary by the angel Gabriel (Luke ).

Come worship the Savior Jesus Christ with us. You will benefit by studying His teachings in the holy scriptures and listening to what He has told prophets and apostles in our day.

You will feel God’s love as you participate in serving one another in the Lord’s Church. The Hebrew word meaning the same thing is Mashiach, or as we know it—Messiah. So Christ is really more a title than it is a name, although the Bible uses it both ways.

For example, the Bible often refers to Jesus by name as “Jesus Christ,” just as we do in modern usage (see Matthew18; Mark ; John ; ; Acts ; Romansetc.). In Christ (because of Christ), we are no longer condemned but made righteous.

(Romans ) In Christ (having been forgiven due to Christ’s sacrifice), we stand before God righteous, holy, and redeemed. (1 Corinthians ) In Christ (covered by the blood of Christ), some of us are still spiritual babies instead of walking strong by the Spirit. Church is connection – with each other and with the Spirit of Christ.

That’s what made Jim’s Communion meditation so special. Church is more than just a community gathering together. If you want that, join a civic club.
