"The Christianity of history is not Protestantism. If ever there were a safe truth it is this, and Protestantism has ever felt it so; to be deep in history is to cease to be a Protestant." (-John Henry Newman, An Essay on the Development of Christian Doctrine).

"Where the bishop is, there let the people gather; just as where ever Jesus Christ is, there is the Catholic Church". -St. Ignatius of Antioch (ca 110 AD)a martyr later thrown to the lions, wrote to a church in Asia Minor. Antioch was also where the term "Christian" was first used.

“But if I should be delayed, you should know how to behave in the household of God, which is the church of the living God, the pillar and foundation of truth.” 1 Timothy 3:15

"This is the sole Church of Christ, which in the Creed we profess to be one, holy, catholic and apostolic." -CCC 811

The CATHOLIC CHURCH is the ONLY CHURCH of CHRIST and no other!

History points out to the Catholic Church as the only Church founded by Christ. Many churches tried to downplay this claim but they failed to provide any historical proof to debunk the claim.

The Catholic Church rightfully claims the title as the CHURCH OF CHRIST in the DOGMATIC CONSTITUTION ON THE CHURCH:

This is the one Church of Christ which in the Creed is professed as one, holy, catholic and apostolic, (12*) which our Saviour, after His Resurrection, commissioned Peter to shepherd,(74) and him and the other apostles to extend and direct with authority,(75) which He erected for all ages as "the pillar and mainstay of the truth".(76) This Church constituted and organized in the world as a society, subsists in the Catholic Church, which is governed by the successor of Peter and by the Bishops in communion with him,(13*) although many elements of sanctification and of truth are found outside of its visible structure. These elements, as gifts belonging to the Church of Christ, are forces impelling toward catholic unity...

"Israel according to the flesh, which wandered as an exile in the desert, was already called the Church of God.(96) So likewise the new Israel which while living in this present age goes in search of a future and abiding city (97) is called the Church of Christ...

"Israel according to the flesh, which wandered as an exile in the desert, was already called the Church of God.(96) So likewise the new Israel which while living in this present age goes in search of a future and abiding city (97) is called the Church of Christ."

Among it's claimers as "Christ's Church" is the Iglesia ni Cristo founded by an apostate Felix Manalo according to what was prophesied in the Bible "some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils" (1 Tim 4:1) Also verses from 2 Peter 2:1-22.

In 2 John 1:7
 "I say this because many deceivers, who do not acknowledge Jesus Christ as coming in the flesh, have gone out into the world. Any such person is the deceiver and the antichrist."
Felix Manalo DENIED JESUS as GOD coming in the FLESH. Such person is "THE DECEIVER AND THE ANTI-CHRIST"

Here is the confirmation from the Iglesia ni Cristo that the CATHOLIC CHURCH is the only valid CHURCH OF CHRIST that JESUS had FOUNDED!

PASUGO Abril 1966, p. 46:
“Ang totoo hanggang sa kasalukuyan ay patuloy na ginagawa ni Satanas ang pagpapasok ng mga maling aral sa Iglesia Katolika na sa pasimula'y siyang Iglesia ni Cristo. Sadyang matalino at tuso ang diablo. Hindi niya ginawang biglaan ang pagtalikod sa Iglesiang itinayo ni Cristo noong unang siglo."

PASUGO July August 1988 pp. 6.
“Even secular history shows a direct time link between the Catholic Church and the Apostles, leading to the conclusion that the true Church of Christ is the Catholic Church.”

Do we need any further proof? Please come back to the ONE, HOLY, CATHOLIC and APOSTOLIC CHURCH OF CHRIST!
