None of the above.

1Ki 19:18 Yet I have left me seven thousand in Israel, all the knees which have not bowed unto Baal, and every mouth which hath not kissed him.

Rom 11:4 But what saith the answer of God unto him? I have reserved to myself seven thousand men, who have not bowed the knee to the image of Baal.

The church body has no denomination or lack of one. It simply is. These are only titles given by man. So, they all are or none of them are, it really doesnt matter. The only thing that matters is when Christ returns, have you received the gift of salvation.

Well, I certainly dont believe in the fairy tales written by evolutionists or any of the other anti-Christian idiots. Talk about mythology.

Which Church is closest to the Biblical Church?
Independent Baptist Church

The Baptist perpetuity view (also known as Baptist succession) holds that the church founded by Christ in Jerusalem was Baptist in character and that like churches have had perpetual existence from the days of Christ to the present.
The Baptist perpetuity view sees Baptists as separate from Catholicism and other religious denominations and considers that the Baptist Church predates the Catholic church and is therefore not part of the Protestant Reformation.

That's often referred to as Landmarkism.

"Which Church is closest to the Biblical Church?" There is only one church. The church is made up of people who believe in the God of the Bible and have embraced the salvation provided through His Son, Jesus Christ. And those believers were first called "Christians" in Antioch (Acts 11:26). A church isn't a building or a denomination. Perhaps you are asking what denominations are closest to the Biblical church as God intended. So to answer your question, let's look at the first or original New Testament church as it looked in the book of Acts.

It was the Day of Pentecost and Peter had just finished preaching. He explained the purpose of GodÂ’s outpouring of the Holy Spirit upon those who were present. His message was a message of acceptance for Christ' work of redemption on the cross and it was a message of repentance for sin. The Bible says that when the people heard his message "they were cut to the heart" and said, "...what shall we do?" (Acts 2:37) On that day of repentance, three thousand new believers were added to their number (Acts 2:40). The New Testament church was born and had its beginnings of that of a mega church with three thousand believers.

So what did the first New Testament church look like? They were a fellowship of believers:

"They devoted themselves to the apostles' teaching and to the fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer. Everyone was filled with awe, and many wonders and miraculous signs were done by the apostles. All the believers were together and had everything in common. Selling their possessions and goods, they gave to anyone as he had need. Every day they continued to meet together in the temple courts. They broke bread in their homes and ate together with glad and sincere hearts, praising God and enjoying the favor of all the people. And the Lord added to their number daily those who were being saved." (Acts 2:42-47)

And what was the result of this type of fellowship? Vs. 47: "And the Lord added to their number daily those who were being saved."

The church grew and flourished because of their devotion to: A. the apostles' teaching, B. to the fellowship, C. to the breaking of bread, D. to prayer. Miraculous signs and wonders were done by God through the Apostles. They shared what they had with one another. They had fellowship together. They ate together. They worshipped everyday. And I could go on and on, but if you read Acts 2:42-47 again you will see the church as God had intended it to be. The Bible church. Good luck in your search. I recommend the Assemblies of God. It's not a perfect fellowship, but in my opinion it is closest to the Biblical teachings of the New Testament church.

Blessings,

I would say "Christian".

Hold on - are we talking the "Biblical Church" - the one where Jesus enters and turns over the money tables and gets all pissed off saying they've turned His Father's house into a house of money and it was led Christ to His death? If so, then definitely the Christian church.

For the life of me I cant understand why dumb people think we want to hear their jibberish when they are usually wrong and have nothing productive to contribute.

LUKE 19:46 Saying unto them, It is written, My house is the house of prayer: but ye have made it a den of thieves.
how does one screw up a simple verse like this,at least make an effort to show you know the bible or at least read the particular scripture before quoting it.
