So many Christian denominations; how do I know I’m in the Body of Christ?

Theological question posited on FB: “How can I be sure that I am in the one body since there are over 34,000 branches of the Christian faith?”

Christian response,

There are not 34,000 denominations and a denomination has NOTHING to do concerning whether or not you’re in the Body of Christ. It is the one who has sincerely repented of sin, believed in their heart and confessed with their mouth that Jesus is God who died to pay their sin-debt and that He was resurrected from the dead for their justification leading to eternal life that is in the Body of Christ (Romans 10:9-10); If you have repented of sin, sincerely believed in Jesus as your Lord, you have received the indwelling Holy Spirit as your Seal and Guarantor of relationship with God the Father, forever (Ephesians 1:13-14); therefore, you are in the Body of Christ apart from any denomination, religion, sect, cult of mankind. It is your personal relationship with God the Father by grace through faith in Jesus as your Lord and Mediator for sin and the presence of the indwelling Holy Spirit in your life that makes you an integral part of Messiah’s Body, the Church; in fact, as a Spirit filled believer, you ARE the Church.

jesus - the Spirit testifies with our spirit that we are children of god
