The Lord’s church is not a denomination but a group of people who have been saved. In Acts 2, the apostle Peter preached the first recorded gospel sermon. He told them to repent and be baptized, and thus, “be saved from this perverse generation” (Acts 2.38-40). Many in the audience responded to the gospel. In verse 41, we are told that “those who gladly received his word were baptized and that day about three thousand souls were added to them” (Acts 2.41). They were added to the number of people who were saved. Those saved people became the church. In the last verse of the chapter, we learn that “the Lord added to the church daily those who were being saved” (Acts 2.47).
Do I need to be a part of the Lord’s church to be saved? We are told in Ephesians 5.23 that “Christ is the Savior of the body.” What is the body? The answer is found in the first chapter of the book. There we learn that Christ is the “head over all things to the church, which is His body” (Eph. 1.22,23).
Jesus is the Savior of the church. That means that if you want to be saved, you must be a member of His church. You can become a member of the church when you respond to the gospel. When you do, God adds you to His church.
