The Idea of a one world church (or religion) in the back of someone’s mind has probably been around for centuries. As far as the Christian Scripture is concerned it was addressed basically by prophecy through John the Apostle in the book of Revelation. As I state later on in this article Scripture does not specifically say, and use the words “one world church,” but there is a lot of evidence that is what Scripture is talking about in the book of Revelation.
Listed below is information that I have gathered from various sources that lead me to believe the race for a one world church is active today. Many religions/faiths have made concessions and changes in their church doctrine and what they believe Scripture states that show they want to become more inclusive over the past few decades. To me, that is more proof that the idea unifying of all religions is well underway.
What is the World Council of Churches (WCC)?”
Answer: The World Council of Churches is an international, interdenominational fellowship of Christian churches. Denominations within the WCC include mainline Protestant, Anglican, and Eastern Orthodox churches. The WCC is intentionally ecumenical and inclusive.

The Coming One World Religion – Pope Francis Hosts Muslim Prayers At Vatican
June 29, 2014, By Beginning and End
Pope Francis is seeking to unify all faiths to achieve “peace and safety.”
In his ongoing effort to unify the denominations of the Christian faith as well as other religions, Pope Francis hosted a series of interfaith gatherings at the Vatican that saw Muslim prayers given from the pulpit for the first time in its history. The Pope’s efforts while seemingly noble are in complete contradiction to Bible Scripture
ORTHODOX RABBIS ISSUE GROUNDBREAKING DECLARATION AFFIRMING “PARTNERSHIP” WITH CHRISTIANITY [Excerpts] TBC 1/6/16
“A group of prominent Orthodox rabbis in Israel, the United States and Europe have issued a historic public statement affirming that Christianity is “the willed divine outcome and gift to the nations” and urging Jews and Christians to “work together as partners to address the moral challenges of our era.”
THE PAPACY OF THE ROMAN CATHOLIC CHURCH
“In the Apprising Ministries piece On Contemplative Spirituality and Charismania I told you that the ongoing evangelical fascination with corrupt Contemplative Spirituality/Mysticism (CSM)–along with its parallel track of charismania–is a major reason why we see the mainstream of professing Protestant Christendom opening itself up for full fellowship with the apostate Roman Catholic Church.
For example, evangelical mega-pastor Rick Warren is on record embracing apostate Roman Catholicism as a viable form of the historic orthodox Christian faith. As I documented a while back in Southern Baptists Assist the Roman Catholic Church to Infiltrate Evangelicalism, Warren is hardly the only one aligned with/promoted by the Southern Baptist Convention openly and actively involved with this particular apostasy.”

“Scratching your head over John Kerry’s recent “borderless world” comments? Consider this: The visible church is cooking up the very same concept. It’s an anti-doctrinal blending that can be summed up in one battle cry: UNITY.
Unity in this movement can bring together charismatics, reformed folk, NAR/Word of Faith, seeker-friendly churches, progressive/emergent leftists, and Roman Catholics, all under one umbrella. Because you don’t need doctrinal distinctives or even denominations, as long as you all love Jesus and are kind to each other and the planet.
How is this New Unity accomplished? Through those mega-signs-and-wonders revival meetings shaping the landscape of churchianity: The Call: Azusa Now. Revival D.C. 2016. The West Virginia Awakening. Los Angeles Azusafest. And this summer’s Reset: Together 2016. Youth by the busload are converging and learning that this kind of unity for borderless churches is desirable and necessary.
Then you have the leadership conferences, like this summer’s Willow Creek Global Leadership Summit 2016, Bill Hybel’s cornucopia of worldly movers and shakers and one of two guest pastors is Prosperity Gospel guru T.D. Jakes. All under the Unity umbrella; all to bring your pastors to a new understanding that we need to listen to each other to find common ground.”

My comments; More and more evangelical, charismatic, main line protestant pastors, Jewish and Muslim leaders and even the Catholic Pope and Bishops are working to form unions with each other. One of their reasons for doing this is because they say “we all serve and pray to the same God.”
I believe that there will be a one world church or end times church is not an assumption, it will be a fact. Scripture states and describes the one-world religion in Revelation chapter 17. Personally, I think if one religion has the will and power to hold that position it will be that of Islam. They are fierce, determined, and willing to go to any lengths to convert or destroy civilization. I think Catholics would like to have that position but they don’t stand a chance against Muslims.
Even though the concept of a one world church is a reality, we are called to resist and fight it as much as we can. Acts 5:29 Peter and the other apostils replied; “we must obey God rather than human beings.”
Yes, we are to love, even our enemies, but we are not to partner or serve with them within our faith and we are to expose their false teachings (Eph. 5:11).
I’m sure there are many churches in your area that adhere to the idea that as believes we can all (all faiths) work together, that we may believe we all serve the same God, and the we should all come together as one body. Personally, I do not read that Scripture tells us to do that. Listed below are a few scriptures that tell me not to believe in, associate or become partners with these churches and their ideas (in religious matters). 2 Cor. 6:14, Matthew 7:13-15, Colossians 2:8, 1 Timothy 2:5, and Matthew 7:21-23. But we are called to love all people (including people of different faiths, not their religion) as stated in Luke 10:27, have friendships with people of non Christian faiths and atheists, pray for them, and help them. However, we are to keep our faith pure and not add to or delete from (Deuteronomy 4:2, Revelation 22:18) the teachings of scripture so as to make allowances to obtain universal unity in a combined faith community (one world church).
I believe the stage is set for a one world church and many “Christians” are holding the doors open and many will enter with ease.
In his apocalyptic vision in the Book of Revelation, the Apostle John gives us insight as to how this will happen. GotQuestions.org gives a description of Revelation 17 and how it relates to the coming one world religion. Check it out at; https://www.gotquestions.org/one-world-religion.htmlev.
Yes, we know who wins in the end, God has revealed to us the outcome and how and what will take place, and the pain and suffering some will endure. He has also told us to be ready for that day, to prepare and to help others to prepare, and to give His message to as many as possible. People will have the opportunity for salvation even up to the Tribulation so in my mind everything matters, even to the end.
