One elder who claimed to be in the local church (Witness Lee brand) told me proudly that they are going to "raise" up more than churches in India. On enquiry I came to know, most of these churches were already in existence since many years. One very prominent Elder was.

    A lengthy doctrinal exposition published by LSM, A Statement Concerning the Teachings of the Local Churches & Living Stream [Ministry] in Response to Dialog with Fuller Seminary clearly shows the central doctrinal orthodoxy of the churches while also acknowledging & explaining those peripheral teachings that are the most troublesome to other.
