Watchman Nee suggested starting a new work, but I have seen the fruit of
that, and (given the worldly mind-set we are faced with in culture) these
"new works" quickly degenerate into just another division. I have come to
just accept as a given truth that the church is what God says it is.That
It is an organic whole (on a local level) and is in fact one body - The
body of Christ. I do not join any of these divisions, or start one of my
own, but rather practice fellowship with all who follow Him, and see my
brethren as gifted members of one Body. Instead of being attached to one
small group (or large), we continue to assemble with believers from
various connections whenever God opens the door.
