Big C // Praise & Shine

It is easy to get caught up in all the differences from one church to another and from one denomination to another. The church is not four walls and a roof, but rather the body of believers.  

Regardless of what denomination you may call yourself, if you call yourself a Christian you worship Christ and believe these fundamental truths: 

  • Christ is truly human and truly God
  • Christ was born of the Vergin Mary
  • Christ died for our sins
  • Christ rose from the dead
  • Christ ascended into heaven and will return to judge the living and the dead

As long as you believe in these essentials, this is what’s important. Different denominations can disagree on other matters, and there’s vast diversity among them. But the fact that they can all agree on these essentials indicates their importance to all Christians. 

All this diversity is what we should expect from a religion that spans the whole world and has lasted over two thousand years. 

John Wesley said, “We may not all believe alike, but we can all love alike.” We may disagree on important matters like Christian baptism. However, we can still find the foundation for our fellowship with one another and treat one another with genuine respect—as members of the body of Christ (1 Cor. 12:1–14:40).

We must put our differences aside and work together to reach a lost and hurting world so that heaven may be more filled.
