Excerpts from the Ministry
|"In the process of living the Christian life, I have discovered many things, not just by my own experiences but also by the revelation in the Holy Bible. In God's economy there are three crucial factors - God and man plus the Bible, which reveals the history of God in His union with man. In the Bible we have seen the unique God desires to be wrought into man, making Himself one with man. He lives in this man and this man lives in Him. These two entities have one living."|
(Witness Lee, The Overcomers, p. 108)
|"God's goal is twofold: First, it is for all things to manifest Christ. In other words, it is for Christ to be Head over all things. Second, it is for man to be like Christ, to have His life and His glory. Today many believers on earth are lacking in Christ, and many things are manifesting Satan. But God will eventually reach His goal. One day, all things will manifest Christ. We have to pray that we will gain more Christ and manifest Him more so that God's will can be fulfilled soon."|
(Watchman Nee, God's Eternal Plan, ch. 3)
|"First, we must clarify that we are not some thing. We are not a new denomination. Neither are we a new sect, a new movement, or a new organization. We are not here to join a certain sect or form our own sect. Other than having a special calling and commission from God, there would be no need for us to exist independently. The reason we are here is that God has given us a special calling.
....Every worker of the Lord should inquire before God as to what the present truth is. We need to ask: "God, what is the present truth?" Although there are many major and crucial truths in the Bible, what we need to know is God's present truth. Not only do we need to know the general truths, we must also be clear about God's present truth."
(Watchman Nee, WHAT ARE WE?, ch. 1)
