After reading this,most if not all will take this for granted. But a time will come when people will scramble here including the critics to learn the doctrines of living right according to God's will. It is the time when the Church has been taken into the wilderness.
Nearly all church denominations claimed to be the only one God's true Church. How do we know which church is being used by God to further His inspired work here on earth?Well the only way to know is through God's own Word, the Bible.

Listed below are ways or doctrines that only a true Church of God believes in and lives by it to death. They will be hated of this world and are called by God the 'little flock.' They are termed in the book of Revelations as 'having little strength' because they will be few only in numbers. Biblical verses suggests ten thousand only as living in the wilderness when Christ returns.

Doctrines of God's True Church:


• God's true Church believe in one God, eternally existing, Creator of the heavens and Earth and all that is in them (Gen. 1:1). The Godhead is actually composed of two personages: the God who became the Father of Jesus Christ, and the Word who was made flesh and became God’s Son (John 1:1-14).
(Does not believe in the trinity doctrine)

• A true Church should believe Jesus of Nazareth was the Messiah, the Christ, the divine Son of the living God, begotten of the Holy Spirit, born in the human flesh of the virgin Mary. Christ came to Earth the first time to qualify to replace Satan on the throne of the Earth (Matt. 4). He also came to establish and build His Church (Matt. 16:18) and to train those who would rule under Him in the Kingdom of God. He proclaimed the gospel: the good news of the future establishment of the Kingdom of God on Earth (Mark 1:14-15), which will be made up of the family of God, administering the government of God, based upon God’s law.

• God's true Church should believe the Holy Spirit is the Spirit of God and of Christ Jesus,the power of God (Acts 1:8; Rom. 15:19) by which all things were created and made.
(Holy Spirit is not God or part of a three in one godhead)

• A true Church should believe the Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments are God’s revelation and complete expressed will to man, inspired in thought and word, and infallible in the original writings; that they are of supreme and final authority, and the source of truth (II Tim. 3:16). A true Church should believe all teachings contrary to the Holy Bible are false.
(False teachings such as trinity, rapture,Sunday sabbath keeping and more)

• A true Church should believe Satan is a spirit being and, as the devil, is the adversary of God and the children of God (I Pet. 5:8). God has allowed Satan dominion over the world for 6,000 years, leading the children of Adam into rejection of God’s law and rebellion against God. Satan’s power is merely to influence and lead, not to force humans arbitrarily against their will. He has ruled by deception (Rev. 12:9) with the aid of a host of demons which are rebellious angels, spirit beings, who have followed Satan in his rebellion.

• A true Church should believe man was created in the image of God (Gen. 1:27), and is wholly mortal, subject to corruption and decay, without eternal life inherent in himself, except as the gift of God under God’s terms and conditions as expressed in the Bible. Adam and Eve sinned, thereby incurring the death penalty without having received eternal life. God then allowed Satan to sway all their children, influencing mankind to sin, thus bringing upon themselves the penalty of death (Rom. 6:23).

• A true Church should believe sin is the transgression of God’s law (I John 3:4); that the law is spiritual, perfect, holy, just and good (Rom. 7:12), summed up in the word love (I John 5:3); that it involves the two great principles of love to God and love to neighbor, and that the Ten Commandments compose the ten points of that law (Matt. 22:37-40). A true Church should believe this fundamental spiritual law reveals to us the only right and true way to life,the only possible way of happiness, peace and joy; that it is immutable and binding throughout eternity; and that all unhappiness, misery, poverty, anguish, and woe has come from its transgression.
(Believes the Ten Commandments still stands and was not abolished)

• A true Church should believe God so loved this world of helpless sinners that He gave His only begotten Son (John 3:16), who, though in all points tempted as we are, lived without sin in the human flesh (Heb. 4:15) and died for us as a representative and substitutionary sacrifice (Heb. 10:12). This made it legally possible for man’s sins to be forgiven and for God to release him from their penalty, since Jesus, whose life was of greater value than the sum total of all other human lives (because it was He who brought them into being), has paid the penalty in man’s stead.

• A true Church should believe Christ was raised from the dead after His body reposed three days and three nights in the grave (I Cor. 15:3-4), thus making immortality possible for mortal man; that He thereafter ascended into heaven where He now sits at the right hand of God the Father as our High Priest and Advocate (Heb. 8:1; I John 2:1-2).

• God's true Church should believe that all who truly repent of their sins in full surrender and willing obedience to God, faithfully accepting Jesus Christ as personal Savior, are forgiven their sins by an act of divine GRACE (Eph. 1:7). They are justified, pardoned from the penalty of past sins, reconciled to God (Rom. 5:9-10) and given the gift of the Holy Spirit upon baptism (Acts 2:38) into the body of Christ, which is the true CHURCH OF GOD. The Holy Spirit abides within such a person, effecting a true change in life and attitude, supplying the divine LOVE which alone can fulfill the law and produce righteousness. At baptism a Christian is begotten of God and will be born into the family of God at the resurrection (John 3:6; I Cor. 15:52). A true Church should believe God’s greatest purpose is to expand His family.

• A true Church believes that from Friday sunset to Saturday sunset, the seventh day of the week, is God’s Sabbath (Exod. 20:8-11). On this day true Church members must rest from our labors, following the commands and example of the Apostle Paul, the New Testament Church and Jesus. The Sabbath is a sign between God and His people (Exod. 31:13).
(Does not observe Sunday as a day of rest or sabbath)

• A true Church should believe the seven annual holy days, as given to ancient Israel by God through Moses (Lev. 23), kept by Christ, the Apostle Paul and the New Testament Church,are to be kept today. These festivals picture God’s plan and purpose for mankind. The Passover and Days of Unleavened Bread occur every spring; Pentecost is observed in early summer. In the fall, we observe Trumpets, Atonement, the Feast of Tabernacles and the Last Great Day. The sacrifices, which were added and later superseded by Christ’s sacrifice (Heb. 9:22-10:10), are no longer to be kept on those days nor at any other time.
(God's Church does not observe the death of Tamuz on Easter,and the birth of Nimrod on Christmas)

• God's true Church believes Christians are forbidden to kill (Exod. 20:13) or in any manner directly or indirectly take human life. A true Church should believe bearing arms is contrary to this doctrine; thus God's true Church therefore conscientiously refuse to bear arms or to come under military authority. Christians are, in fact, citizens of another government (John 18:36; Heb. 11:13-16).

• God's true Church believes the PROMISES were made to Abraham and his “seed,” Christ (Gal. 3:16), and that the covenants (including the New Covenant) and the promises pertain to ISRAEL. The national phases of the promises,MATERIAL blessings,have been given to the modern physical descendants of the Israelites (Gen. 22:15-18), but the SPIRITUAL phase of the promises,SALVATION, is through Christ alone, and is freely open to Gentiles also who, through Christ, become Abraham’s spiritual children and heirs according to the promises (Gal. 3:7-9, 29).

• A true Church of God believe the Church is that body of believers who are being led by the Holy Spirit; that the true Church of God is not a denomination; that the inspired name for this spiritual organism is “THE CHURCH OF GOD” (Acts 20:28); that the mission of the Church today is to preach the gospel of the coming KINGDOM OF GOD to all nations as a witness (Matt. 24:14), with emphasis on the warning to America and Britain of the prophecies pertaining to them (Ezek. 33:7); to reconcile to God, and to save, through Christ, such people as are now called (John 6:44); and to minister to the Church of God. Members of the Church are being specially trained in this life to rule with Christ in the Millennium (Rev. 20:6).

• God's true Church believes the only hope of eternal life for mortal man lies in the resurrection. At the end of the Millennium, ALL who have lived not knowing God will be raised to physical life and given the opportunity for salvation (I Cor. 15:22; Rev. 20:5). God's true Church believes that there shall be a resurrection of the just and unjust (Acts 24:15; Dan. 12:2),the just to eternal life as spirit beings upon Earth, the unjust to the second death in hell (Gehenna) fire in which they shall perish in eternal punishment (Rev. 20:13-15).

• God's true Church believes in the imminent return of Jesus Christ to rule the Earth as King of kings and Lord of lords (Rev. 19:16); that at that time He will sit upon the throne of David, restoring all things during a thousand-year reign upon Earth and establishing the Kingdom of God, forever to be headquartered on Earth.

*If Fiji is to receive the full blessings of God,MATERIAL AND SPIRITUAL,All churches should return to the biblical doctrines listed bove.

*At this very moment there is no Christian denomination in Fiji to my knowledge who believed in only the Father and the Son. All believed in a trinity and almost all observed the day of the sun as their sabbath. Also almost all believed that the Ten Commandments have been abolished. These are only a few doctrines that goes contrary to the Bible as the Word of God.

How God makes up His group of “called-out ones”

Jesus promised, “I will build MY CHURCH” (Matt. 16:18). But what is a church? The word churchcomes from the Greek ecclesia, which is derived from a root meaning “to call out.” The Church Jesus said He would build is a group of “called-out ones.”

Today we have become confused. Instead of the ONE CHURCH, the one group of called-out ones who belong to Jesus Christ, we seeHUNDREDS of differing groups, with DIFFERENTbeliefs, DIFFERENT customs, DIFFERENT methods of church government, DIFFERENT goals,DIFFERENT places of worship, DIFFERENTdoctrines—MYRIADS OF INSURMOUNTABLE DIFFERENCES. Why?

“There is ONE body, and ONE Spirit, even as ye are called in ONE hope of your calling; ONELord, ONE faith [or doctrine], ONE baptism, ONEGod and Father of all …” (Eph. 4:4-6). But people do not know where to look for this one Church. Nearly every great error in thinking stems from false assumption. And because most ASSUME many things about what the Church should be, they are led into a labyrinth of false claims, obscure history and error.

Let’s not assume! Jesus Christ said nobody could come to Him unless God the Fathercalled him first (John 6:44). This coincides with the use of the word ecclesia for the Church—a group of called-out ones.

Christ never prophesied His Church would become a large, impressive, politically powerful church ruling over the nations in this age.

Far from becoming more respected in the community, far from having their business opportunities enhanced, gaining more friends or being raised in social status, Jesus promised those in His true Church would beHATED, PERSECUTED and perhaps even KILLEDbecause of it (John 15:18-19; 16:2).

It is no wonder then, that Christ calls His true Church a LITTLE flock! It is a little Church, a small group of sincere, converted called-out ones who have FORSAKEN this world in repentance. It is a small, rejected, despised body of believers who are doing the WORK of God.

Christ had a WORK to accomplish on Earth (John 9:4). Even though some may not have believed Christ, He warned them to look toTHE WORKS BEING ACCOMPLISHED for the proof they sought (John 10:37-38). The same is true in determining where God’s Church is today.

Believe it or not, you CANNOT “join” the Church of God! No one ever HASno one ever will! God must PUT you into it!

Upon hearing the true message about the Kingdom of God, many people wrestle with the question of what to do. The same was true when the Jews at Jerusalem heard Peter’s inspired sermon on the Day of Pentecost; they asked, “Men and brethren,WHAT SHALL WE DO?” (Acts 2:37).

Well then, why didn’t Peter seize the opportunity? Why didn’t he tell them, “GO JOIN A CHURCH”? Instead, he said, “REPENT, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy [Spirit]” (v. 38). God will give that Spirit only to those who are willing to OBEY Him (Acts 5:32). When you receive God’s Spirit, YOU ARE AUTOMATICALLY PUT INTO THE BODY OF CHRIST, which is the CHURCH OF GOD—the group of called-out ones!

You can enter God’s true Church by REPENTINGof your disobedience to God’s law, by calling on God’s true servants to baptize you, and by claiming God’s promise of the gift of His Holy Spirit. That is the ONLY way!

Church attendance by itself does not meanCHURCH MEMBERSHIP in God’s sight. It is not anEND IN ITSELF and will not “save” you! It is—where God has made it possible—a MEANS to salvation. God does instruct His true servants not to forsake the assembling of themselves together (Heb. 10:25). But God forbids you ever to join in with the worship of counterfeit church bodies—no matter how close to the truth they seem (Eph. 5:11). Only the genuine worship of God in His Church is acceptable to Him.

God’s Church has “little strength” (Rev. 3:8). It is scattered. It is not noticed by the world. It is a “little flock.” Some have opportunities to meet, but many are unable to attend local congregations. They are the “strangers and pilgrims” on this Earth—looking for a better world to come.

But that Church has open doors set before it—of television, radio, the printing press and the Internet—to carry God’s warning and the gospel of the soon-coming Kingdom of God to the WHOLE WORLD as a last witness.

Should you join a church? No! Because any church you can “join” is not the Church of God!

PROVE to yourself WHERE God’s Church is. Where the WORK of that Church is being done—where the ministers of God are faithfullyCRYING ALOUD and SHOWING PEOPLE THEIR SINS—and don’t settle for a counterfeit! Respond to God’s calling. Then, follow Peter’s admonition: REPENT, and be baptized in Christ’s name—into Christ’s one and only body. 

One True Religion—One True Church!

By Ron Fraser.
Is religion relevant to life in the 21st century? Is there one pure religion, one true church?
Despite centuries of secularist efforts to denigrate religion, it has returned with a vengeance to increasingly become the most divisive force in society today. Whether it be marriage, family, human relations, or discourses on morals and ethics in an increasingly confused and confusing society, religion is woven through the entire debate on the future of society.

Jew, Muslim, Christian or pagan—whatever form the religion takes, it has created a foundation for cultures that have underpinned whole societies for generations. But it is the two great evangelizing religions—Christianity and Islam—that have wrought so much destruction over the centuries in their clashes against each other and, in most recent times, caused so much suffering for the Jew in particular. These three religions—Judaism, Islam and Christianity—have had the most powerful influence on society over the past 2,000 years.

Sooner or later, any thinking person who believes in what Sir Winston Churchill termed “divine Providence” has to ask and seek to answer the question, “What is the true religion?”

So let’s consider that question. A good place to start would be to define the term religion.

As religion is a complex subject, we will base this brief article on the simplest of definitions. The Britannica Dictionary defines it, “Any system of faith and worship.” Though such a definition includes all three religions that accept one or both testaments of the book known as the Holy Bible, it also includes those that don’t. It is thus too broad for our purpose. We shall narrow that definition to embrace “A system of faith and worship that claims to believe in the one true Creator and Sustainer of the universe.”

As our audience is formed of those who do believe in one omnipotent God, it is to these three predominant religions that we look to prove the answer to the question, “What is true religion?”

Judaism, Islam and Christianity in its three major forms—Roman Catholicism, Orthodox and Protestant—all purport to believe in one true God. To the Jew that is YHVH, as revealed in the Torah. To the Islamic believer it is Allah, as revealed in the Koran and the writings of Mohammed. To the Roman Catholic, the Godhead is triune—consisting of the God of the Torah, or Old Testament, Jesus Christ of the New Testament and a personified Holy Spirit—plus Mary, queen of heaven. To the Protestant, the Godhead is the trinity, without the attachment to Mary.

Why is it that these three religions, all claiming to believe in the God of the Abraham of the Torah (the Old Testament), two of them claiming Abraham as their ancestor, so thoroughly disagree on a singular definition of the God that Abraham worshipped?

The Old Testament definitions of God are clear, precise and impossible for the open mind to misunderstand. He is the beginning of all things (Genesis 1:1). There are no other gods apart from the one true God (Deuteronomy 4:35, 39; 1 Kings 8:60; Isaiah 45:5; Joel 2:27). He is the first and the last (Isaiah 44:7-8). He prophesies the end from the beginning (Isaiah 46:9-10; 48:3-5). He never changes (Malachi 3:6). He prophesied the coming of the Messiah, the city of His birth, the exact duration of His earthly ministry and His return to set up God’s government over all (Daniel 9:25-27; Micah 5:2; Isaiah 9:6-7).

In respect of the true historical figure of the Messiah, Jesus Christ, those familiar at the time with the prophecies of His coming to the Earth to fulfill His short 3½-year ministry would have known the prophesied timing and location of His birth in Bethlehem. That is clearly why scholars of those ancient prophecies came to Bethlehem to search Him out in the early autumn of 4 B.C. They had computed the time of the event from the prophetic accounts in the Old Testament (Matthew 2:1-6).

The only provable historic accounts of the Messiah’s prophesied birth are recorded in the New Testament of the Bible. The subsequent eyewitness accounts of His ministry, the history of the early Church plus that of the first apostles ordained by Jesus Christ are recorded in the New Testament of the Bible.


  • Where is that church today?

  • Christ established only ONE church under and by His divine authority, based on ONE divinely inspired body of doctrine (Ephesians 4:5). He is the personification of the Word of God (John 1:1). That means, by definition, that the one true Church that He established will be not only extant today, but it will possess the same, unchangeable doctrine He gave it at the beginning. It will be founded not upon only one testament of the Bible, but two, for as one of the foundational apostles of the Church, the Apostle Paul, declared, the true Church is founded upon the apostles and the prophets! (Ephesians 2:20).

    That church will exhibit faith not in a triune god but in a Godhead comprised of Father and Son (John 14:6-14). It will not worship at the throne of the queen of heaven. It will have no history of slaughter through crusading to extend its empire (Matthew 10:14). It will be a small flock, comprised of the weak and the base of society (1 Corinthians 1:26-29). It will be an embattled church (John 15:20), persecuted but vibrantly energetic in fulfilling its mission by the power of the Holy Spirit, the very power of Almighty God! (Acts 1:8). It will be a church given to fulfilling a mission of prophecy! (Revelation 10:11).

Where is that one true Church today? It mustbe in existence, for Jesus Christ its Head declared of it that the gates of the grave would never shut it down—it would never die!

Like it or not, religion, the church and Jesus Christ are vital topics of discussion once again. Even a mass-circulation newsmagazine has asked the question, “Jesus—Will He Ever Return?” Yet again religion dominates international relations, particularly in the hottest spot of international tension, the Middle East. It is at the very core of the pope’s cry for a great evangelizing of Europe. Religion is at the very heart of the war in Afghanistan. Religion is the spur for Islamist terror. It is at the very foundation of the Jewish state.

Your Bible prophesies the coming clash between two powers, a great northern power and a southern power, each driven by religious zealotry to seek universal domination. Religion is about to affect your life profoundly, regardless of whether or not you are a believer. Believe it or not, your Bible prophesies of a global power that will soon dictate whether or not, and how often, you will eat! (Revelation 13:11-18).

There is only one true Church which can explain to you the relevance of today’s tumultuous world events to your life, where this is all leading, what you can do to cope with the impact, and the guaranteed outcome.

You need to read two basic booklets, which are entirely politically incorrect, mincing no words and pulling no punches in revealing the plain truth about the one true God, the reality of God’s Word, and where to find the one true Church. Believe it or not, the church Jesus Christ founded so long ago does exist in its original purity of doctrine amid and despite all the religious and anti-religious confusion that floods society today.

A Prophecy About God’s Church

Chapter 1.

The book of Revelation is all about world news! What God gave in the Bible’s most important book of prophecy is a description of world events that carry this world to the time of Jesus Christ’s Second Coming!

The Apostle John recorded the prophecy, but he didn’t understand most of it. It is for this time right now, and it is mostly about the chaotic present. The terrible events besieging our world were all prophesied in Revelation. We can see it as never before: The events it describes are beginning to unfold before our eyes!

Revelation gives us a time sequence of major events. It supplies the story flow. Every gigantic step in world events is described in that book, where we can read and study it.

God gives His Church a great responsibility, and He expects a lot from us. He charges us to deliver a message of hope and good news. But that message also includes a strong warning about the worst suffering ever to strike this Earth, just before Christ’s Second Coming. God commands that we do all we can to broadcast this message to the whole world.

A lot of insight about the Church’s commission can be found in the earliest chapters of the book of Revelation.
