Obviously, Jesus Christ would attend a church that teaches
and believes the same things He does.   Therefore:

[] He would attend a church that teaches and believes that EVERYONE IS A
SINNER before God
, because He said:

"For from within, OUT OF THE HEART OF MEN, PROCEED EVIL THOUGHTS,
adulteries, fornications, murders, Thefts, covetousness, wickedness, deceit, lascivious-
ness, an evil eye, blasphemy, pride, foolishness: ALL THESE EVIL THINGS COME
FROM WITHIN, and defile the man."
  Mark 7:21-23

[] Jesus would attend a church that preaches that SINNERS MUST REPENT.
That means they must change their mind; admit they are a sinner, forsake their sinful
practices, and submit themselves to God, making Him the Lord of their lives.   Jesus said:

"I came not to call the righteous, but SINNERS TO REPENTANCE."   Mark 2:17

"Likewise, I say unto you, there is joy in the presence of the angels of God
over one SINNER THAT REPENTETH."
  Luke 15:10

A repentant sinner must also stop trusting in whatever they are trusting in to get them to
Heaven (such as baptism, good deeds, church membership, self-righteousness, etc.).   And,
instead, place all their trust in Jesus' death and shed blood as the only payment for their
sins.   Jesus Christ said:

"The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand: REPENT YE,
and BELIEVE THE GOSPEL."
  Mark 1:15

"I tell you, Nay: but, EXCEPT YE REPENT, ye shall all likewise perish."   Luke 13:3

[] Jesus would attend a church that preaches that unrepentant sinners are cast
into a literal Hell
, because He said:

"The Son of man shall send forth his angels, and they shall gather out of his kingdom

all things that offend, and THEM WHICH DO INIQUITY [i.e. SINNERS]; And shall
CAST THEM INTO A FURNACE OF FIRE: there shall be wailing
and GNASHING OF TEETH."
  Matthew 13:41-42

"But I will forewarn you whom ye shall fear: Fear him, which after he hath killed
hath power to CAST INTO HELL; yea, I say unto you, Fear him."
  Luke 12:5

[] Jesus would attend a church that preaches that the only way a sinner can
avoid Hell is by repenting and placing all their trust in Christ, and Him alone, to save them.

Jesus said:

"I AM THE WAY, the truth, and the life: NO MAN
cometh unto the Father, BUT BY ME."
  John 14:6

"I AM THE DOOR: by me if any man enter in, HE SHALL BE SAVED,
and shall go in and out, and find pasture."
  John 10:9

So obviously, Jesus would NOT attend any church that teaches that the way to Heaven
is through baptism, good deeds, self-righteousness, church membership, Mary, or sacra-
ments.   To anyone trusting in the things just mentioned, Jesus warned:

"I said therefore unto you, that ye shall die in your sins: for IF YE BELIEVE NOT
THAT I AM HE, YE SHALL DIE IN YOUR SINS."
  John 8:24

Remember, Jesus is THE ONLY DOOR that leads into Heaven.   That is why He said:

"Verily, verily, I say unto you, HE THAT ENTERETH NOT BY THE DOOR into
the sheepfold
[Heaven], BUT CLIMBETH UP SOME OTHER WAY,
the same IS A THIEF and a robber."
  John 10:1

"If a man abide NOT IN ME, he is cast forth as a branch, and is withered; and men
gather them, and CAST THEM INTO THE FIRE, and there are burned."
  John 15:6

[] Jesus would attend a church that preaches that when a sinner repents and
places all his trust in Christ, and Him alone, to save them, they are born again.
  Jesus said:

"Except a man be BORN AGAIN, he CANNOT SEE the kingdom of God."   John 3:3
