Introduction: Christian onenessthe Bible stresses it, believers long for it, the world expects to see it...but where is it? In the local church. This vital truth was rediscovered and heralded by Watchman Nee and Witness Lee, prolific and visionary twentieth-century Christian writers. As this website will demonstrate, their revelation of and fervency for the scriptural local church still resonates in their writings.
Witness Lee followed in the footsteps of his co-worker Watchman Nee to proclaim the indispensable scriptural key to the obtaining and maintaining of a genuine, practical oneness among the believers in Christ: There can beand in reality there isonly one church in a city. This is the local church. These brothers proclaimed and practiced in mainland China what they had discovered in God's Word regarding the practical, local ground of the church. This practice of meeting as the church in each city spread from China to other countries in the Far East and then to the United States, Western Europe, South America, and Russia. Today, along with Watchman Nee and Witness Lee, tens of thousands of Christians have seen this principle of the ground of locality in the Bible and have therefore willingly dropped all divisive names, doctrines, and preferences in order to simply hold the faith which is common to all believers. These Christians can be found all over the globe meeting as the local churches and practicing the church life as prescribed in the New Testament.
