Jimmy Swaggart says;What Church Should I Attend?
You should attend a Church that is Spirit-filled, Spirit-led, and Spirit-oriented with teaching that is based on the Word of God. The Church that you choose to attend should preach the Cross.
The following should be taught and preached in the Church:
Salvation through the Blood of Jesus Christ should be preached (Mat. 26:28; Acts20:28; Col. 1:20; Heb. 9:22; I Pet. 1:18-19).
The Church should teach the Baptism with the Holy Spirit with the evidence of speaking with other Tongues, which is available to all Believers, and is received after conversion (Isa. 28:11-12; Acts 2:4; Acts 10:45-46; Acts 19:6; I Cor. 14:4-5, 14-18).
A victorious, overcoming Christian life should be preached. This means victory over sin in every capacity (Rom 6:11; I Cor. 15:57-58; Eph. 6:10-13; James 1:22; I Jn.5:4-5; Rev. 2:7).
Divine Healing according to the Word of God should be preached (Ex. 15:26; Ex. 23:25; Isa. 53:5; Mk. 6:13; James 5:14-15, I Pet. 2:24).
The Rapture of the Church should be taught and preached (I Cor., Chpt. 15; I Thess. 4:13-17).
The soon and eminent return of our Lord to Earth, to take up His rightful position as King of kings and Lord of lords should be preached (Rev. Chpt. 19).
Whatever Church is attended, should be a Church filled with a group of people, whether the number is little or large, with a consuming desire to take the Gospel of Jesus Christ to the entirety of the world.
Swaggart preaches; You will know you are saved when you confess with your mouth and believe in your heart that there is only one Saviour, only One who has paid the price for your Redemption and that Saviour is the Lord Jesus Christ.
The Scripture says: “If you shall confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus, and shall believe in your heart that God has raised him from the dead, you shall be saved. For with the heart man believes unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation" (Rom. 10:9-10).
Your Salvation is a gift from God. You simply have to believe and accept that the Lord Jesus Christ died on Calvary to pay the price for your redemption.
The Scripture says: “For by Grace are you saved through faith; and that not of yourselves; it is a gift of God; not of works lest any man should boast" (Eph. 2:8-9)
THE WORD OF GOD SAYS; (1)WHAT MUST I DO TO BE SAVED? (1) The Question Analyzed. “What” This word suggests that there is something required of man in being saved. He who asks the question understands this fact. (2).”Must” This word indicates that it is not a question of what “should” I, or what “may” I, but what “must” I do? It is not a matter of option. The word “must” teaches the absolute necessity of the requirement. (3) “I” It is not what God, Christ and the Holy Sprit must do, but what must “I” do. All know that the Trinity has a part in man’s salvation. God, Christ and the Holy Spirit have perfectly executed the divine part in man’s salvation. But the inquirer is not seeking to learn the functions of the Trinity. The “I” in the question denotes individual responsibility. (4) “Do” It is not what I must get, think, feel or believe. The word “Do” suggests activity on the part of man in being saved. Salvation is not a matter of passiveness, but of activity. God saves; still, man saves himself by obeying the gospel, God’s power to save (Rom. 1:16, Acts 2:40). Take the word “do” out of Christianity and you destroy it. You never read of an inspired man telling a sinner that there is nothing for him to do to be saved. (5) “To be saved.” This phrase denotes the purpose of complying with the conditions “to be saved” is the object sought by the querist, the phrase also suggests that the saving is done by another. But what must man do to be saved by the Heavenly Father? A SURE WAY TO ANSWER THE QUESTION (1). There could be no plainer, wiser and surer way to answer the question than to turn to the Bible and read the question and the answer given. If the question is found one hundred times, then read each question and answer given thereto. This would be scriptural and right beyond question; furthermore, it would present the whole truth on the subject.(continue reading)
I Will Build My Church
—Christ the Founder of the church
Jesus told Peter, "I will build my church" (Matthew 16:18). Soon after he died and arose from the dead, he did exactly that —He built his church, and he has been building it ever since.
We introduce the series Search for the True Church by briefly looking at the statement of Jesus, "I will build my church".
The church is what Jesus built. Jesus did not say to Peter, "I will build your church". He said, "I will build my church". It is not "the church of Saint Peter". It is the church of Christ. Jesus is the true rock, and the church has "no other foundation" and no other founder. (1Co 3:11). Many denominations exist, all built and founded by someone other than Jesus. The church is not one of these. The church of Christ existed before any of these denominations. It did not arise out of them, and they did not arise out of it. They are separate "buildings" which the Lord did not build.
It is impossible to be saved out of the church of Christ, because it is impossible to be saved without being delivered out of the power of darkness: " Who delivered us out of the power of darkness, and translated us into the kingdom of the Son of his love" (Col. 1:13). Those in the kingdom-and the kingdom is the church of Christ(Matt.16:18,19)-have been delivered out of the power of darkness. Hence, those not in the kingdom have not been delievered out of the power of darkness. Persons out of the kingdom which is the church of Christ are in need of having their eyes opened "that they may turn from darkness to light and from the power of Satan unto God, that they may receive remission of sins and an inheritance among them that are sanctified by faith in me" (Acts 26:18)
The churches of Christ salute you, Romans 16:16.
TO BE BORN AGAIN, we must not take the Word of God out of contact, and when I say that, its very important to be BORN AGAIN the way God set it up before the foundation of the World. Some people want the Bible to fit their mind or their way of thinking so they look in the Bible and find a place like John 3:16 and say they believe with out understanding what it says. Then one of the TV preachers or hometown boy turned good is telling them to call out to God in the name of Jesus to come into your heart so you can be BORN AGAIN. Some of these Preachers even give you the words to say, they call it a sinners prayer, some of them take it from the tenth chapter of Romans. If you study the chapter you will understand that is not what the Bible writer is saying. Also I am going to tell you there is no (place or conversion) in the Bible recorded were anybody ever did call out to God or accepted God to be BORN AGAIN, its a false way.

AGAIN SWAGGART PREACHES WHAT CHURCH SHOULD I ATTEND;THEN HE TELLS YOU A FALSE WAYTO TAKE YOU TO HELL
But God be thanked, that ye were the servants of sin, but ye have obeyed from the heart that form of doctrine which was delivered you.
18 Being then made free from sin, ye became the servants of righteousness.
