Allow me to reiterate that statement...
Belonging as a card carrying member of a Christian denomination, has nothing at all, to do with your salvation. Because "Denominational Divergence" is sin.
Jesus never commanded us to follow any man's teachings over the word of God...
In fact Jesus was against the organized religion of his time and so should we...
Consider; 1 Corinthians 1:10-17
I appeal to you, brothers, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that all of you agree with one another so that there may be no divisions among you and that you may be perfectly united in mind and thought. My brothers, some from Chloe's household have informed me that there are quarrels among you. What I mean is this: One of you says, "I follow Paul"; another, "I follow Apollos"; another, "I follow Cephas"; still another, "I follow Christ."
Is Christ divided? Was Paul crucified for you? Were you baptized into the name of Paul? I am thankful that I did not baptize any of you except Crispus and Gaius, so no one can say that you were baptized into my name. (Yes, I also baptized the household of Stephanas; beyond that, I don't remember if I baptized anyone else.) For Christ did not send me to baptize, but to preach the gospel—not with words of human wisdom, lest the cross of Christ be emptied of its power.Also consider;
"You may remember the story of how Satan and a demon of his were walking down the street, when they saw ahead of them a man stoop down and pick up something from the ground, look at it, and put it away in his pocket. The demon said to Satan, 'What did that man pick up?' 'He picked up a piece of the truth,' said Satan. 'That is a very bad business for you, then,' said his demon minion. 'Oh, not at all,' Satan replied, 'I am going to help him organize it.' says Satan 'We will use money as the lure and make it irresistible to the greedy, we will build a theocracy that will stand the test of time.'
Some would say but we need to be organized in order to defeat the Devil in the world. News flash, Jesus Christ already did that for us. All we need do is as believers is spread the gospel and allow others to know we are Christians by our love. Gathering is of course biblical and there is a good example in Acts as to how we should gather.
The Lord bless and keep you;
The Lord make His face shine upon you,
And be gracious to you;
The Lord lift up his countenance upon you,
And give you peace.
