The Local Churches: “Genuine Believers and Fellow Members of the Body of Christ”



This book contains statements from leaders of three prominent Christian organizations concerning the orthodoxy of the local churches:

  • Hank Hanegraaff, President of the Christian Research Institute (CRI),
  • Gretchen Passantino, Director of Answers in Action (AIA), and
  • Fuller Theological Seminary, represented by:
    • President Richard Mouw,
    • Dean of Theology Howard Loewen, and
    • Professor of Systematic Theology Veli-Matti Kärkkäinen

Their statements affirm that those in the local churches are, in the words of the Fuller scholars, “genuine believers and fellow members of the Body of Christ.”
