The Perfect Church Should Celebrate Passover

In our comparison to churches of nowadays to the church established by God, we come to find out some differences - except for one church.

2000 years ago, Jesus Christ celebrated a very important feast through which He gave us the forgiveness of sins.

Matt. 26:19 'So the disciples did as Jesus had directed them and prepared the Passover...26 While they were eating, Jesus took bread, gave thanks and broke it, and gave it to his disciples, saying, "Take and eat; this is my body."
27Then he took the cup, gave thanks and offered it to them, saying, "Drink from it, all of you. 28This is my blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins."'

On the Passover night, which is only celebrated on the first month and 14th day of the year (Lev. 23:4-5), Jesus promised us His flesh and blood through the bread and wine. According to the Bible, this feast is celebrated at God's appointed time (click here) once a year. However, do you know of any church nowadays that celebrates the Passover at this appointed time only?

Now churches all around, even though they profess to believe in Jesus Christ and have His blood, unfortunately, they celebrate the ceremony of Christ's body and blood whenever that particular church decides.

2000 years ago, as God established the perfect church when he came as Jesus Christ, and celebrated the New Covenant Passover. If we want to be apart of the perfect church, we must find the one that celebrates the Passover in the same way/time as the Early Church. Looking around, only the Church of God World Mission Society fits this discription. Therefore, through the Passover celebration, we can recognize the true and perfect church from the false churches.
