Evangelical union is not simply a matter of associations and coalitions, but it is a based on the central doctrines of the faith. As Dr. Martyn Lloyd-Jones proclaims, these are the doctrines of the natures of Christ, the sufficient atoning work Christ, the doctrine of justification by faith, and the doctrine of God’s Word. This is a Spirit empowered supernatural work in the life of believers that unite them to God and one another. The Church cannot sacrifice the truth of the Christian faith and God’s Word for the appearance of union, for true evangelical union is found in the non negotiable doctrines of Christianity. Evangelicals should seek to build up the Church around God’s truth as found in His Word. To substitute unity in the gospel for a worldly unity based on nothing more than human institutions is to compromise the truth of the Christian faith. The pursuit of evangelical union will often cause controversy and division, but this is the inevitable effect of seeking to follow God above man. So, evangelicals are not to compromise the glorious truths of God’s word for the fading recognition of sinful man and the world. For God commands His church to follow him no matter the cost.
