The True Christian Church - all whose names are written in the Book of Life
The True Church is the collection of all true believers - those men and women who have accepted Jesus Christ as their personal Savior and Lord. They have accepted Jesus's death as a substitute for the penalty for their own individual sins, and they have been born again as a new creation, indwelled by the Holy Spirit, and irreversibly dedicated to following the truth of God as provided in the Word of God, the Bible.

True believers are only those whose names are written in the Book of Life.

These true believers are scattered among Christian institutions in varying proportions and they are linked together by the guidance of the Holy Spirit.

the Institutional Church - Christian Denominations and Organizations
God has established Christian institutions to maintain his influence in the world, to do good works, to spread the gospel of Jesus Christ, and to provide an environment for Christian fellowship and worship. Although these institutions generally promote basic Christian principles, the implementation of these principles are subject to human error and secular influence.

The following is a list of the webpages for the major Christian denominations and organizations. This list will be periodically expanded and revised.
