1: The One Body of Christ, the Church (Ephesians 4:4; 1:22-23)

The church is not merely a physical structure but a spiritual entity, united by our common faith in Jesus Christ. As members of the body of Christ, we are called to live in harmony and unity, reflecting the love and grace of our Savior.

2: Composed of Christians (1 Corinthians 1:2)

The church is composed of individuals who have accepted Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior. As disciples of Christ, we are called to proclaim the gospel and make disciples of all nations, contributing to the growth and edification of the body of Christ.

3: Remaining in the Doctrine of the Apostles (Acts 2:42; 1 Corinthians 4:17)

To maintain the unity of the church, it is essential to remain steadfast in the teachings of the apostles, grounded in the Word of God. As we build this new church, let us prioritize the study of Scripture, ensuring that our faith is firmly rooted in God's truth.

4: Sharing Common Resources and Purpose (Acts 2:44; Ephesians 4:12)

In the early church, believers shared their resources and worked together for a common purpose, advancing the kingdom of God. As we establish this new church, let us emulate this spirit of generosity and cooperation, serving one another in love and unity.

5: Honoring Jesus' Prayer for Unity (John 17:20-21)

In His high priestly prayer, Jesus prayed for the unity of His followers, that they may be one as He and the Father are one. As members of the body of Christ, let us honor Jesus' prayer by striving for unity and reconciliation, setting aside our differences and embracing our shared identity in Christ.

6: Deploring Religious Division (1 Corinthians 1:10-13)

Religious division grieves the heart of God and undermines the witness of the church. Let us guard against divisive attitudes and strive for unity in faith, purpose, and love, recognizing that we are all members of the same body, the church of Jesus Christ.
