What kind of local congregations and synods are acceptable to God?

Share |

God wants Christian local congregations and synods to possess, confess and teach the entire doctrine of His Word in its truth and purity and to administer the Sacraments according to Christ’s command. In other words, God wants the identifying marks of the Church to remain pure in local congregations and synods. (The true visible Church).

Matt. 28:20: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you.

1 Cor. 1:10: Now I beseech you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that ye all speak the same thing, and that there be no divisions among you; but that ye be perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgment.
