The church of Christ is a pure spiritual organization, which makes no concessions to the world at all; which is only based on the soul life of a man, on the conscious will to reach the spiritual aim, which is set for man on earth. Read more:

Symbol of the church of Christ: Spirit work.

19. July 1951. B.D. NR. 5174.

The church of Christ is no organization; it is the joining together of all spiritually striving men of all denominations, believing in Jesus Christ and his work of redemption and living in love, because not the latter prove their belonging to that church, but the spirit, which speaks out of those men, who belong to it. This must also be comprehensible to you that it can never ever be enough for God, when a man joins this or the other faith direction, according to the name or also impressed through customs and traditions, as every individual organisation (denomination?) shows, but that God only judges the conviction of a man and it can be in every denomination so or so, i.e. more or less according to the will of God, more or less paying attention to the divine commands. And still this alone is decisive, who is allowed to be counted to the church of Christ whether the spirit out of God has also been awakened in man through a love life. The church of Christ is a pure spiritual organization, which makes no concessions to the world at all; which is only based on the soul life of a man, on the conscious will to reach the spiritual aim, which is set for man on earth. The church of Christ unites all believing, i.e. inwardly convinced followers of Jesus, who make the divine love teaching to the law of life for them, who acknowledge the work of redemption of Christ and know no other striving, than to develop the power of the spirit through conscious joining together with him who are therefore illuminated by the divine spirit, what will always be regarded as proof of the belonging to his church. The church of Christ needs no other feature outwardly to be recognized as his true church, which he himself has founded on earth, than just the spiritual rebirth, which is proved through the expression of the divine spirit in man. And it is again recognizable through enlightened thinking, through recognition of truth, recognition of the purpose of life of man, through strong faith and the unusual effect emerging out of this, may it be in healing of the sick, in the turning away of great earthly need, in the flowing in of the divine word or in commanding the elements for the use of the neighbour. A power will then always emerge, which is of divine origin, so man has reached the spiritual rebirth, and he also belongs to the church of Christ, which stands outside of all church organizations, but can count men of all denominations as its members. It is a spiritual community of all deeply believing men, and its head is Jesus Christ himself, with whom each one member must get into intimate contact, to be received into his church. Because his church is something alive; it is no dead form, which exists according to the name before the world, but has no spirit in it. His church is build up on a living faith, which has been awakened to life through love. For that reason love and faith is the first condition to belong to this his church, why also in every denomination those men belong to his church, who stand in living faith, which has emerged out of love for God and for the neighbour. All these men Jesus Christ unites in his church founded on earth, and he also honours them with the gifts of the spirit according to maturity, ability and determination of their activity on earth for his kingdom. Wherever the spirit of God works, there stands a pillar of his church, which is and remains unconquerable until all eternity. Amen. B.D. NR. 5174.
