Truth in Christ

The Chruch teaches that the Catholic Church is the one true Church instituted by Jesus in the New testament.

The Church Is One (Rom. 12:5, 1 Cor. 10:17, 12:13, CCC 813-822) Jesus established only one Church, not a collection of differing churches (Lutheran, Baptist, Anglican, and so on). The Bible says the Church is the bride of Christ (Eph. 5:23-32). Jesus can have but one spouse, and his spouse is the Catholic Church.

The Church Is Holy (Eph. 5:25-27, Rev. 19:7-8, CCC 823-829) By his grace Jesus makes the Church holy, just as he is holy. This doesn't mean that each member is always holy. Jesus said there would be both good and bad members in the Church (John 6:70), and not all the members would go to heaven (Matt. 7:21-23).

The Church Is Catholic (Matt. 28:19-20, Rev. 5:9-10, CCC 830-856) Jesus' Church is called catholic ("universal" in Greek) because it is his gift to all people. He told his apostles to go throughout the world and make disciples of "all nations" (Matt. 28:19-20).

The Church Is Apostolic (Eph. 2:19-20, CCC 857-865) The Church Jesus founded is apostolic because he appointed the apostles to be the first leaders of the Church, and their successors were to be its future leaders. The apostles were the first bishops, and, since the first century, there has been an unbroken line of Catholic bishops faithfully handing on what the apostles taught the first Christians in Scripture and oral Tradition (2 Tim. 2:2).

The ROMAN CATHOLIC Church teaches "Truth in Christ" infallibly.
