    What doctrines must an organization or group believe in order to be a Christian organization or group, and what doctrines, if believed, exclude an organization or group from being a Christian organization or group? Please be specific but respectful of others posting in this thread.

    An organization, as opposed to an individual, is supposed to know their stuff. Therefore I would suggest it should:
    1.) Believe in the Trinity
    2.) Believe is Salvation by grace through faith + nothing
    3.) Believe the Bible is the Word of God
    4.) Believe in the infallibility of the Bible

    I agree with JRG39402 with one clarification. Item 4 is a bit broad. Rather, I'd say that one must accept that the Bible is a Christian's final authority on matters of faith and practice. That's a bit more specific to the role of scriptural infallibility.
