CORE stands for a Congregation Of Recorded Elders.
Jesus said "It is also written in your law, that the testimony of two men is true." John 8:17
The word we see as testimony is also translated record.
It has always been the custom that people of Bible kept records. In fact the books of the Bible are a part of those records. Establishing things to be true by the recorded testimony of two or more people has been designated as part of the process for centuries.
Congregations of the early Church were nothing more than free assemblies of the Elders or heads of families who came together seeking the Kingdom of God and His righteousness. Those Elders mentioned in the Bible were not an office of the Church appointed by Christ but the natural office of Husband and Father to God's basic form of government in the kingdom, the Family, because the Kingdom of God is from generation to generation.
These independent families sought to practice Pure Religion by taking care of one another through Freewill offerings by Faith, Hope and Charity and the Perfect law of liberty without using any of the benefits offered by the world of Caesar or any other authoritarian Benefactors.
At Pentecost the heads of families being Baptized began to form a network by the free elders of each family gathering in small groups of ten who picked titular ministers who met the criteria of Christ's appointment to serve their needs in society. These together in this Network of Tens in one accord were the Church, the Body of Christ and together Congregants in Free Assemblies and recognized by two or more witnesses and appointed by other Ministers naturally formed the Church in general.
Those ministers chosen by the people were to gather with other ministers like themselves to form a national in an international Network of people who loved their neighbor as much as they loved themselves.
This gathering in the name of Christ, because they gathered in His love, formed a peculiar people who lived in the World but not of it. Christians lived by their faith in Christ and in His way of caring for each other, attending to the Weightier matters and providing a Daily ministration, not by force but by Fervent Charity and Sacrifice of love.
Modern Christians have followed another way, not of Christ.
It is time for repentance.
