Hello All, I hope you are all well.
The biblical name of the true Church is “the Church of God.” God names things as they are. The name is clearly stated in both singular and plural form in twelve different places in the New Testament–including Acts 20:28; 1 Corinthians 1:2: 10:32; 11:16; 2 Corinthians 1:1. To find the rest of the places God names His Church simply get out your handy dandy concordance and look up the word “church” and “churchs”.
The Curch of God is the body of Christ of which He is the Head, Colossians 1:18, 24. That is part of the biblical definition of the Church.
The Church is also described as the affianced Bride of Christ, 2 Corinthians 11:2; Ephesians 5:22-32. She will be protected in the soon coming tribulation, (there is no rapture), Revelation 12:14-16, if there were a rapture off to heaven the earth wouldn’t to swallow the water to protect them. Her offspring that Satan will come after in Verse 17 are those who were not zealous for God, see Revelation 3:14-16.
The word translated to the English “church” is the Greek “ekklesia” Strongs 1577 Gr. This word is made up of two root words the first being, “kaleo” St. 2564 Gr. this word means: (to call, invite, summon. The authority of the Speaker dictates the nature of the calling.) The other word is “ek” St. 1537 Gr. meaning: (of, out of; from, away from) it has to do with one being seperated out of, and away from that in which he or she was originally. The essance of the word is that when God calls one, He calls them out of this world to be a part of His Church, His Begotten Family. see Romans 8:14-17
So when you see that information, the Church of God could be said “the Called of God”. God has always called His servants, even Abraham, Genesis 12 - the father of the faithful. Jesus said that no one could come to Him except the Father call them to Christ, John 6:44. Then if we respond in a positive way, Christ will choose us to be His disciple, John 15:16, and to reveal the Father to us, Christ being the only Way to the Father, John 14:6. For many are called but few are chosen, Matthew 22:14.
At any rate that is the biblical definition of the true Church, it also has a definition of a great false church mentioned in Revelation 17:1-6, and is called Jezebel in chapter 2:20-23.
Those are the biblical definitions.
Y’all have a good day. GED
