TRUE because Jesus built a Church
And I say to thee: That thou art Peter; and upon this rock I will build my church, and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.
And …the church of the living God, the pillar and support of the truth…… 1 Timothy 3:15
Salvation is brought to each generation and person through the Church. This is how Jesus chose to bring us salvation. This does not mean that the Church replaces Jesus or can do without Jesus or is more important than Jesus and His Life, Death, and Resurrection. Jesus could have chosen to save each person by personally appearing to them and teaching them. But, he chose, instead to found a Church to do the preaching, teaching, baptisizing etc.
