From the time of Protestant Reformation, many churches
have tried to get as close to the New Testament as
possible. Conforming to the New Testament pattern
requires that a church should have the right doctrine, right emphasis, and also that it should reject all
what God rejects.
Many churches have the right doctrines, but they do not emphasize that which is to be given
emphasis and thus the fail in conforming to the Bible. Others have the right emphasis, but do not
teach the whole counsel of Scripture so that people soon drift into human do-goodism instead of a

Bible-based holy living. Still others try to give the right direction to the church through creeds and
customs, but succeed only in taking the church closer to the carnal society.
The Brethren Movement, however, has succeeded in emphasizing the right doctrine, right practices,
and also in rejecting all man-made additions to the church. Thus it is a unique group, as close to the
New Testament principles as possible.
After reading this book, some of you might want to point to the shortcomings of the Brethren
Assemblies. Please remember, shortcomings will always be there in the Christian world as long as our
sin nature is with us. Thus the main question should not be “why are there these shortcomings in our
churches”. Rather, the right question that each one of us should as is “since I am part of such a
blessed group, what has been my contribution so far to enrich this group”. Once our readers start
asking this question honestly to themselves, they will find that they are on the path of a new
transformation in their spiritual life.

Come, Let Us Go Back To The Bible!
Please Join The Mission of Brethren Research Group
Every reform movement comes to slumber in a century or less. There are practically no exceptions in
the last two millennia of church history. Thus each generation needs Ezras and
Nehemiahs to rebuild the foundations that were once laid down but which are in
ruins now! The only solution is to go back to the Bible and its fundamentals.
The authors stand unashamedly and without wavering on the following
fundamental principles: Bible Alone (Sola Scriptura), Faith Alone (Sola Fide), Grace
Alone (Sola Gratia), Christ Alone (Solus Christus). With this in mind we bring to
you a set of writers who stand strong on these principles.
