To find the one true church, we

over another, but finding the church that preaches the true gospel. The Bible
tells us that the church is founded on the teachings of the apostles and the
prophets (Ephesians 2:20). It also calls the church "the pillar and
foundation of the truth" (1 Timothy ).
It upholds and proclaims the truth that is taught in the Bible.
"There is one body and one

churches with different teachings on salvation exist in the world today. It is
necessary for every Christian to seek the one faith that the apostles once

salvation. We must come into this church by accepting the true gospel and be
baptized into the one body of Christ (see 1 Corinthians ).
