- The local churches stand on the Holy Scriptures, not according to any traditional interpretation, but according to the pure Word of God.
- The local churches stand on Christ, the living rock, the foundation stone, the Head of the Body, and the life and reality of the church.
- The local churches stand on the genuine unity of the Body of Christ. We are not sectarian, nor denominational, nor nondenominational, nor interdenominational.
- The local churches stand on the ground of the oneness of all believers in each locality; we recognize all the blood-redeemed and Spirit-regenerated believers in Christ as members of the one church in each city.
