1966 and All That: An Evangelical Journey - Life in a Doctrinally Mixed Denomination

In 1966, Martyn Lloyd-Jones made a public appeal for unity among evangelicals through the pursuit of a fellowship of evangelical churches. This book discusses Lloyd-Jones' appeal for unity, and what this appeal means for churches today. In this chapter, the author discusses how this appeal was made in the context of a doctrinally mixed denomination.

The Idea of a Federation

Is a church federation the only way in which churches can show their unity? Looking at the unity of God's people from the Old and New Testament, this article shows that God's people are called to be one. The author traces this expression of church unity through the Reformation, showing that there is a way of acknowledging each other while embracing diversity. There can be "federation of federations".

Why a Federation of Churches?

Where does the Bible say that churches must join together in a federation? This article looks at the characteristics of the church (unity, catholicity, apostolicity and holiness of the church) and what this means for churches to form a federation. The author also looks at Scriptural references that are important for church federation, and how the churches in the New Testament lived together in unity.
