Definition of True Church

Now let's look at what makes up the Church body. To do this we need a definition of Church:

The Church is Christ's body with Jesus Christ as the head.12 Colossians 1:18 And He is the head of the body, the church, who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, that in all things He may have the preeminence. However, without any members, Jesus remains in the heavens. When the members come together for His purpose, they form His body known as the Church.13 Ephesians 5:30-32 For we are members of His body, of His flesh and of His bones. "For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh." This is a great mystery, but I speak concerning Christ and the church. The building is not necessarily the Church. The building may be property of the Church, but it is not the Church. The body is made up of individuals, the called-out members.

All State churches are typically made up of people who consider themselves residents of the State. The State offers them privileges and benefits like public education, public libraries and welfare assistance. The State also has regulatory programs such as licensing drivers, vehicle registration and titling, building permits and business licenses. Those who participate in these programs show that they are one with the State. If the church is made of people who have acquired these licenses and privileges, then the church has fallen from grace and put herself under the laws of men.14 Galatians 5:4 You have become estranged from Christ, you who attempt to be justified by law; you have fallen from grace. The church becomes a branch of the State. Her members do the will of the State. With their lips they may declare that Jesus is Lord, but with their actions they prove the State governs them.
