How Do I Become a Member of the Church? (Vol. 15)

Excerpt from the Tract:

On the day of Pentecost, when Peter preached his first gospel sermon, we read that three thousand souls repented of their sins and were baptized for the forgiveness of those sins. Then, at the end of this same chapter are these words, “Praising God, and having favour with all the people. And the Lord added to the church daily such as should be saved” (Acts 2:47).

“Churches of Christ,” “church of God,” “church of the firstborn,” and “the church” are all references to the same thing–the church that we read about in the Bible. One would think that the religious world’s desire is to be part of that church. However, a cursory perusal of our own communities shows that there are many who are religious, and nearly as much whose religion is in vain. How do I know? Drive down the street, take down the name of every church you see on those church signs, and then ask yourself, “Is that the name of the church I read about in the Bible?” If it’s not, then red flags should be going up in your mind.
