    All Believers Are Saints

    Believers Are Called
    To Be Saints

    According to Scripture, saints are the body of Christ, Christians, those who believe in and follow Jesus. Saints are members of God's Church, with Jesus, the Bridegroom, as the Head of His Church and the saints are the Body of the Church, the Body of Christ, His Bride. All believers are considered saints. All believers are saints—and at the same time are called to be saints. Christians are saints by virtue of their connection with Jesus Christ, who is the way, the truth, and the life.

    6 Jesus saith unto him, "I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me." —John 14:6 (KJV)

    Christians are called to be saints, to increasingly allow their daily life to more closely match their position in Christ. This is the biblical description and calling of the saints.


    The Godly Character Of Saints

    • That you receive her in the Lord in a manner worthy of the saints... (Romans 16:2)
    • For the equipping of the saints for the work of service, to the building up of the body of Christ... (Ephesians 4:12)
    • But immorality or any impurity or greed must not even be named among you, as is proper among saints... (Ephesians 5:3)
    Saints Are The Body Of Christ

    Saints are members of a group of people (believers who follow Jesus Christ) set apart for the LORD and His Kingdom.

    Experiencing the God of Joy: By centering our lives around Christ, we can experience true joy.

    I totally agree. To say that some Christans are saints and others are not is Unbiblical
