"The historic Christian teaching holds that national Israel was a type or a forerunner of the church, and that the church replaced Israel on the day of Pentecost... God has but one plan of salvation. There is also only one body of God. This body is made up of every born again individual from both the Old and New Testaments. God's people were known in the Old Testament as 'Israel.' The same people, in the New Testament, are known as 'the church.' As a matter of Scriptural fact, these terms are used interchangeably: the church is referred to as 'Israel' (Gal. 6:16), while the Old Testament remnant is referred to as 'the church' (Acts 7:38)."
