A meeting place for
The Church in Buffalo
By this will all men know that you are my disciples if you have love one to another.
A group of Christians who love our Lord Jesus and meet together at 2540 Main Street in Buffalo, NY, as well as our homes.
We desire to follow the Lord and to carry on a practical church life based on the example in the New Testament. To this end, we receive many of the riches given to us by the Lord through His many servants over all centuries. We appreciate that Martin Luther saw justification by faith, that John Calvin wrote so clearly concerning predestination, that Madame Guyon recorded her inner-life experiences, that Count Zinzendorf practiced true fellowship with other believers, that George Whitefield opened the way for evangelism, that J. N. Darby expounded the Bible so thoroughly, that A. B. Simpson lived the life of Christ, that Andrew Murray showed us the subjective experience of the Spirit of Christ, and that Jessie Penn-Lewis spoke of the cross and spiritual warfare. In the past century, Watchman Nee and many other brothers have been greatly used by the Lord to reveal the truth of gathering on the ground of oneness for the practical expression of the Body of Christ in each city. They realized that Christians need to live by Christ, and the church must be practically one, inclusive of all believers while being void of any kind of division (Acts 1:14, 2:26, 5:12, 15:25).
Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity!

Our Guiding Principles
We love Christ and we love His Body (The Church)
We stand on the fact of the genuine oneness of the Body of Christ, in order to experience the unsearchable riches of Christ
We stand on the ground of the oneness and unity of all believers in each city. We recognize and receive all the blood-redeemed and Spirit-regenerated believers in Christ as members of the Church, which is Christ's unique Body universally, and which is expressed practically as one church in each city.
1983 – Present
We began with a few brothers and sisters who had a realization that our life as Christians should be focused on Christ and his Church. The Christian life could be so much more than going to Sunday gatherings, bible studies, or having good events, it could be our life. Through this kind of realization, much prayer was made before the Lord, regarding how to practically carry out such a commission. Today we endeavor with the same commitment to live a life solely for Christ and for his Church.
We do not really have a name, nor are we associated with any organization. We are simply believers of Jesus Christ who desire only to hold and honor the precious Name of our Lord Jesus. In the first century, believers were simply "Christians" (1 Peter 4:16), and that was a name given to them by others (Acts 11:26), and to that end we endeavor based on their pattern.
