One True Church
Sing ye to the Lord a new canticle: let his praise be in the church of the saints.
ST. MATTHEW 16
18 And I say to thee: That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church. And the Gates of hell shall not prevail against it. 19 And I will give to thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven. 13And whatsoever thou shalt bind upon earth, it shall be bound also in heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth, it shall be loosed also in heaven.
ST. MATTHEW 18
17 And if he will not hear them: tell the church. And if he will not hear the church: let him be to thee as the heathen and publican.
ST. MATTHEW 28
19 Going therefore, teach ye all nations: baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Ghost. 20 Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you. And behold I am with you all days, even to the consummation of the world.
ST. LUKE 10
16 He that heareth you heareth me: and he that despiseth you despiseth me: and he that despiseth me despiseth him that sent me.
ST. JOHN 13
20 Amen, amen, I say to you, he that receiveth whomsoever I send receiveth me: and he that receiveth me receiveth him that sent me.
THE ACTS 20
28 Take heed to yourselves and to the whole flock, wherein the Holy Ghost hath placed you bishops, to rule the Church of God which he hath purchased with his own blood.
1 And he gave some apostles, and some prophets, and other some evangelists, and other some pastors and doctors: 12 For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ: 14 That henceforth we be no more children tossed to and fro and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the wickedness of men, by cunning craftiness by which they lie in wait to deceive.
1 TIMOTHY 3
15 But if I tarry long: That thou mayest know how thou oughtest to behave thyself in the house of God, which is the church of the living God, the pillar and ground of the truth.
1 ST. PETER 2
25 For you were as sheep going astray: but you are now converted to the shepherd and bishop of your souls.
1 ST. PETER 5
13 The church that is in Babylon, elected together with you, saluteth you. And so doth my son, Mark.
