Philippians 3:15-16 (quickview)  (Amplified Bible)

3:15 So let those [of us] who are spiritually mature and full-grown have this mind and hold these convictions; and if in any respect you have a different attitude of mind, God will make that clear to you also.

3:16 Only let us hold true to what we have already attained and walk and order our lives by that.

It is a mandate for all churches to have their set of beliefs or doctrines that they believe in, i.e. they call it tenets of faith, or declaration of faith. If a certain church will not declare or make transparent their set of doctrines, they might be hiding something. A local church members think alike because they act and do according to the doctrine they have been taught in church.

When you desire GOD's instruction (doctrine), you do it and you abide on it and you speak the same.

Illustration: If a church believes on Salvation doctrine only in JESUS' name, they will promote acceptance of the LORD JESUS as LORD and Savior, and salvation can only be found not on good works or religion but relationship with the LORD JESUS CHRIST.
