North Texas Fellowship is merely a name that represents a cooperation of believers in the body of Christ. The name was used more so as effort to collectively come together and support the Feast of Tabernacles. Otherwise, we identify ourselves as the body of Christ and not by any faction, denomination or organization.

When we see the gospel first preached in Acts 2, there were thousands baptized on that day for the purpose of receiving forgiveness of sins. They were in conflict with Jesus who had been established as Lord and King but when they believed in Him, they were commanded to repent and be baptized for the forgiveness of their sins. Acts 2:36-38. When they did this, they became simply Christians, members of that group of people that belonged to Jesus, His body or church. Acts 2:42, 47, 1 Cor. 12:13-14.

When they were baptized they did not belong to any church or man-made denomination. After they were baptized, they became a part of Jesus’ one church (assembly of saved people). They had been baptized into a relationship with Christ, not into any man-made denomination. Gal. 3:26-29, Rom. 6:1-7. The only church we should be a part of is the one Jesus built by dying for us, being raised from the dead, receiving authority over all and revealing the message of salvation to us through the apostles by the Holy Spirit. Matt. 16:13-20. His church is composed of all individuals who have expressed obedient faith in Him and continue to follow the apostles’ teaching. Eph. 5:22-25, Acts 2:42.

After being baptized, we are commanded to work and worship together with other Christians in local assemblies (churches). Therefore, we should join ourselves to a local church that is seeking to follow the apostles’ teaching and not denominational teachings. Acts 9:26, Rom. 16:16, 1 Cor. 1:1-2, Acts 2:42, 1 Cor. 16:1-4, 11:17-34, Chapter 5, 2 Cor. 11:8-9.
