Taking the Lead to Stand on the Unique Ground of the Church, the Ground of Oneness

Being in the Realm of Oneness by Exercising our Spirit to be Mingled with the Spirit

There’s very much confusion today concerning the church, and it seems that most believers join the church of their preference, since there are so many options out there.
