Sermon
by Mr Armstrong
Are you really a Christian?
given 9th July 1983 played Wales UK 13th December 2003
Mr Armstrong makes plain, that baptism in water - though required - does not make someone a Christian. It is the baptism (immersion) by one Spirit that places someone into the body of God's One True Church (1Cor 12:13), giving us a totally different purpose, attitude and direction in life. This Spirit is the essential ingredient to create within us God's mind and attitude - as children of God. Increasing this character of God must continue throughout our human lives. (11.2 Mb)

“Just what is an APOSTLE?”
Just what is an Apostle?

Today we find the Church of God in a “wilderness of religious confusion!”

The confusion is not merely around the Church – within the religions of the world outside – but WITHIN the very heart of The True Church itself!
