Simplicity in Christ
Christianity can be made to be so complicated but it shouldn't be that way. Scripture tells us to keep ourselves in the simplicity of Christ,
2 Corinthians 11:3 But I fear, lest somehow, as the serpent deceived Eve by his craftiness, so your minds may be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ.
Unity of the Spirit:
"endeavoring to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace. There is one body and one Spirit, just as you were called in one hope of your calling; one Lord, one faith, one baptism; one God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all" - Ephesians 4:3-6.
We are united in these 7 foundational truths:
We must be in agreement with these 7 essential unity doctrines. Beyond this, we are called to live in simplicity, grace, patience and love towards our brothers in Christ.
Christ is the only Head of the Church. We do not need an additional mediator or priest; Jesus is our mediator and Priest (Hebrews 4:15). We do not need to belong to any Church, Denomination or Society, to be saved. Again, salvation comes through Christ alone: ”For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God” - Ephesians 2:8.
We can stand before God because our sin debt is paid in full…no intercessors, mediators, penance, or works can add to Christ’s finished work on the Cross. Therefore, no matter what happened yesterday or what will happen tomorrow, if you confess Christ and believe then you can be rest assured that you are saved right now and secure in Christ. Romans 10:9 states, “If you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved”. And afterwards, scripture says that when we do sin, to repent and then Jesus is faithful to forgive us of our sin (1 John 1:9).
It's that simple.
