Everybody has a different perspective, brother, but I understand why you resist denominations. I think they exist in the church because it is not the body of Christ. I think denominations must sadden the Lord who told us we are one.
"And I have given them the glory which Thou has given Me, that they may be one, according as We are One" (John 17:22)
"thus we, who are many, are one body in Christ, yet individually members of one another" (Romans 12:5)
"For we, who are many, are one bread, one body, for we all are partaking of the one bread." (1 Corinthians 10:17
"For even as the body is one and has many members, yet all the members of the one body, being many, are one body, thus also is the Christ." (1 Corinthians 12:12)
"in Whom there is no Jew nor yet Greek, there is no slave nor yet free, there is no male and female, for you all are one in Christ Jesus" (Galatians 3:28)
