Denominational systems often advocate works for salvation or works for maintaining salvation in the salvation equation. This is contrary to having faith alone in Christ alone and hinders ones growth in true saving faith.

Rom 16:17-18
"Now I beseech you, brethren, mark them which cause divisions and offences contrary to the doctrine which ye have learned; and avoid them.
18 For they that are such serve not our Lord Jesus Christ, but their own belly; and by good words and fair speeches deceive the hearts of the simple."

Gal 1:6-10
"I marvel that ye are so soon removed from him that called you into the grace of Christ unto another gospel:
7 Which is not another; but there be some that trouble you, and would pervert the gospel of Christ.
8 But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed.
9 As we said before, so say I now again, if any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed.
10 For do I now persuade men, or God? Or do I seek to please men? For if I yet pleased men, I should not be the servant of Christ."

1 Cor 3:9-11
"For we are labourers together with God: ye are God's husbandry, ye are God's building.
10 According to the grace of God which is given unto me, as a wise masterbuilder, I have laid the foundation, and another buildeth thereon. But let every man take heed how he buildeth thereupon.
11 For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ."

I would make certain the heart of their message (the correct "foundation") is what is being built upon, which is Christ crucified. Regardless of the 'name' of the denomination, if they are preaching anything other than or in addition to the gospel of being saved by God's grace through having faith alone in Christ alone, then they are to be "marked and avoided".

There is one Lord, Jesus Christ, one faith (which is in Him), and one baptism, which is performed by the Spirit and into Christ's body at the moment of belief.

Eph 4:5
"One Lord, one faith, one baptism,"

Eph 1:12-13
"That we should be to the praise of his glory, who first trusted in Christ.
13 In whom ye also trusted, after that ye heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation: in whom also after that ye believed, ye were sealed with that holy Spirit of promise,"

Eph 4:30
"And grieve not the holy Spirit of God, whereby ye are sealed unto the day of redemption."
