Inevitably I will be in a normal conversation with someone and the topic of work will come up. They tell me what they do for a living, and then they causally ask what I do. Many people upon hearing I am a preacher react in a very specific way. Some are surprised by my response and feel embarrassed they didn't talk or behave in a certain way (what way they should act is beyond me). But as soon as most people learn that I am a preacher of the gospel, they ask what denomination I am.
That's a great question. I belong to the Church of Christ, but that is not my denomination. In fact, there is no Church of Christ denomination. If they ask what denomination I am, my favorite response is say I am Anti-Denominational. They often have heard of Non-Denomination, but rarely they have heard of an Anti-denominational group. All I mean by this answer is that the bible is clear about the need for unity from the followers of Jesus. 1 Corinthians 1:10, “I appeal to you, brothers, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that all of you agree, and that there be no divisions among you, but that you be united in the same mind and the same judgment.”
So how then can we achieve this unity? It cannot be achieved through our own opinions or desires. If everyone got what they wanted, we could hardly agree on anything, much less religion. So what is the basis of our unity? It must be upon the Word of God alone. If we all assume that our opinions and beliefs are wrong, and simply listen and obey to the Bible, it's entirely possible to have unity!
So when people ask what denomination you are, challenge them to name one denomination in the Bible. It's not there. And if it's not in the book, it should be in our Christianity.
Just something to consider. Ephesians 4:4-6, “There is one body and one Spirit—just as you were called to the one hope that belongs to your call— one Lord, one faith, one baptism, one God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all.”
