What is the church of Christ

The word church  means assembly

Neither is there salvation in anyother,  where by we must be saved Acts 4:12

 Jesus tells Peter, "upon this rock I will build (my) church, and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it" Mt 16:18  The word my shows posessiveness and that he has ownership.  Christ did not build his church with his hands, but he established it with that foundation of faith that Peter confessed.  His church is made up of individual members 1 Cor 12:27; after he established his church on
the day of pentecost, from that 3000 souls, he added to it of those who followed the acts that the others did on that day and he added others, "such as should be saved" Acts 2:47;  Paul tells us that his church is his body  Eph 1:22-23

Enter  Christ's church
 
A person is not a member of the body of Christ until he or she obeys the acts of obedience set forth in the New Testament;
Many try to promote entering the church according to the doctrine of man, man promotes, worshiping on Saturday,
man promotes instrumental music in worship, man promotes sprinking or pouring water over the head as baptism, man teaches other doctrine contrary to Christ's doctrine; Jesus states in Matt 15:9, "but in vain, do men worship me,  teaching for  doctrine (substituting) the commandments of men"
