Christs Way of Salvation

Did you know that Christ has His own way of Saving men on the day of God's wrath?

Born Again Christian believe that by just believing Christ and accepting Him as a personal savior is enough for us to be saved. Other sects and churches also said that Salvation will be based on man's good works. And there are other religious group believe that sacrifices or penitence will lead them to salvation.

But what did Christ say for men to be saved? According to Christ, those who will enter by Him will be saved.

9 I am the door. If anyone enters by Me, he will be saved, and will go in and out and find pasture. (John 10:9, NKJV)
Where can we find those who enter Christ? According to Apostle Paul, those who enter Christ became parts of the body.
5 so we, being many, are one body in Christ, and individually members of one another. (Romans 12:5, ibid.)
What is this body in Christ? This body is the body of Christ, the Church.
18 And He is the head of the body, the church, who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, that in all things He may have the preeminence. (I Corinthians 1:18, ibid.)
However, we should not think that any churches can be a body of Christ. The church which is the true body of Christ is the church founded or built by Christ Himself.
18 And I also say to you that you are Peter, and on this rock I will build My church, and the gates of Hades shall not prevail against it. (Matthew 1:18, ibid.)
It is the church which Christ called it, His Church. It is not the Roman Catholic Church, nor any protestant churches, nor any Christian Fellowships, nor any religious group which claiming by their own as of Christ, but it is the Church of Christ and its members are called Churches of Christ and that Christ claimed it His own.
16 Greet one another with a holy kiss. The churches of Christ greet you. (Romans 16:16, ibid.)
18 And I also say to you that you are Peter, and on this rock I will build My church, and the gates of Hades shall not prevail against it. (Matthew 1:18, ibid.)
In other words, for us to be saved on Judgment day, we should enter by Christ or become members of the Church of Christ. But why is it that we should enter into the body of Christ for us to be saved on judgment day? It is because, Christ is the savior of His body.
23 For the husband is head of the wife, as also Christ is head of the church; and He is the Savior of the body. (Ephesians 5:23, ibid.)
We should not forget this: Christ will save only the Church of Christ, because He is the savior of it. But outside the Church of Christ, it will be the judgment of God.
13 But those who are outside God judges. Therefore put away from yourselves the evil person. (I Corinthians 5:13, ibid.)
So, if you want to be saved on the day of God's wrath, you better find the true Church of Christ and become members of it.
