Keeping the Oneness and Practicing the One Accord

“That they all may be one; even as You, Father, are in Me and I in You, that they also may be in Us; that the world may believe that You have sent Me.” (John 17:21)

“These all continued steadfastly with one accord in prayer, together with the women and Mary the mother of Jesus, and with His brothers.” (Acts 1:14)

The oneness is the Triune God mingled with all His believers, and this oneness is just the Body of Christ. In John 17:20-21 the Lord prayed that all the believers would be one “in Us,” that is, in the Divine Trinity; this is the genuine oneness. This oneness is also the Body of Christ, for the Body of Christ is the mingling of the processed and consummated Triune God with His believers.

The genuine one accord in the church is the genuine practice of the oneness in the Body. The one accord is the base, the ground for our present practice in the Lord’s move

In the book of Acts the one hundred twenty prayed together in one mind, in the same mind, in the same will with the same purpose around and within the soul and the heart. We must see that the crucial need today is the recovery of the one accord; the one accord is the master key to unlock every blessing in the New Testament. We need to maintain the one accord by prayer, the Spirit, and the Word. (Labor Day Weekend Blending Conference, msg. 2, I,B-C, II, III, C.1, D, E)


In the midst of these turbulent times, a fresh burden has stirred in the hearts of the co-workers, leading brothers, and saints in the churches to gospelize, truthize, and churchize North America.

Our Brother Witness Lee considered not only the US as a whole, but, more specifically, Middle America to be most strategic for the Lord’s interest. He hoped that a good number of saints would be led to migrate to many cities and states in America’s heartland, to gain a solid increase for His testimony and bring in a great blessing.

Please pray that many families and full-timers will continue to respond to the call to go to the 10 GTCA cities to strengthen the Lord’s testimony in Middle America. Please also pray that all the practical needs would be met for all of those who are in the process of migrating to these cities.

Oak Glen

The El Dorado Fire is currently burning near our conference center in Oak Glen. Lord’s Day night, the fire burned through the upper part of our property with no loss of buildings. Even though the head of the fire has moved away there is still the danger of spot fires developing due to the dry weather conditions and winds. Fire trucks with crews remain on the property to protect the structures from spot fires. We look to the Lord for His preservation of our property and those in the neighboring community. Please continue to pray for the Lord to protect our blending center and to thank Him for no loss of buildings.

Washington, DC

To the dear churches in North America and abroad, and to the precious saints who have been allotted equally precious faith, from the joyous saints in Washington, DC: Grace to you, and peace in the person of Jesus Christ our Lord!

We would like to announce that on August 12, the church in Washington, DC closed on a property located at 4380 MacArthur Boulevard, NW, Washington, DC 20007 two weeks in advance of the contracted closing date. This property will be the location of the first permanent meeting hall in the nation’s capital and represents the response to years of prayer and petition.

In May of this year, the building fund of the church in Washington, DC had a total of $1.6 million, representing the faithful giving of the local saints over many years. Since that time, the saints here have poured out above and beyond what could be imagined, raising this total to $2.1 million. In addition, bountiful and cheerful giving pouring in from saints and churches around the world has totaled $1.4 million. The total amount offered, $3.5 million, is the exact purchase price of the property. Renovations are underway to build out a facility that would be home to the saints and fitting for the community. We would encourage you to visit https://churchindc.org/meeting-hall/ for updates and photographs as we eagerly await blending with all the saints.

May the Lord continue to be manifested and glorified in every possible way!
