We are an assembly of believers who meet on the first day of the week to worship our God and Father and our Saviour Jesus Christ. As members of His body, we gather only unto the name of the Lord Jesus to remember Him in His death (Matthew 18:20; 1 Corinthians 11:23-26). We take no name except what can be applied to every Christian in every place in the world (typically these believers have been called brethren as all believers are the Lord’s brethren). The word brethren (small b) has been used to describe believers who gather in this manner and their assemblies, who are in most countries of the world. We hold that every person who has the Holy Spirit living in him is a Christian (Romans 8:9; 1 Corinthians 12:13; 1 John 2:26-27; 4:4).
We attempt to follow only the revelation of God in Christ. We understand that what the Holy Spirit has revealed in Scripture through His apostles (Apostles Doctrine) is for all believers for all time, in every place that call upon the name of the Lord (1 Corinthians 1:2). These truths will lead and equip the Christian to live and walk a life of faith in the Spirit. We understand that the lack of perceiving and receiving Scriptural truth in the simplicity of Christ is at the bottom of undermining the work of the Holy Spirit. This has resulted in division, formation of independent sects, sectarianism, denominationalism, variances, and the practice of fleshly and worldly religion (1 Corinthians 1:10-13; 3:1-4; Galatians 5:20) within professing Christendom.
None of the truths expressed in these booklets are new. The Holy Spirit, doing a work in the early 1800s through a small group of the Lord’s brethren, changed Christianity by the truths they rediscovered in Scripture. These truths have been written about by brethren for the last 175 years. This is confirmed by church history as the Holy Spirit used them to change the church world wide, in restored truths, including the priesthood of all believers, an equal brotherhood of priests (1 Peter 2:5, 9; Revelation 1:5-6), Nicolaitanism, the clergy/laity system hated of God (Matthew 23:8-10; Revelation 2:15), and the immediate hope of the church being caught up to be with Jesus (1 Thessalonians 4:13-18; Titus 2:13).
Prophetically, they discovered in Scripture that the Jews would return to Israel and become a nation again after 1800 years of wandering about in Gentile nations. Lastly, the Church Age would come to a close with a great falling away (Christendom refusing the truth in Christ) (2 Thessalonians 2:3), as seen in this day.
We attempt to follow the truth that John the Baptist stated; it should be every Christians path of faith, “He must increase, I must decrease” (John 3:30). This is done by rejecting the many erroneous doctrines of iniquity that abound in the professing church today. Separation unto Christ is not optional, but a must for a Christian to walk in faith, and, “…with those that call on the Lord out of a pure heart” (2 Timothy 2:22).
