Being "unanimous" or in agreement was a dominant aspect of the early church brethren.

Whenever the early church brethren met in Jerusalem, we are told that they were united and in harmony with each other and with God (Acts 2:46, 4:24). The unanimity was spiritual and practical, not just theological, for we see that they shared their lives and possessions. Acts 2: 42-47 gives us a description of the relationships of the brothers of the time: they met, studied together, shared their material possessions (Acts 2:45). They often met together to pray, thereby demonstrating not only their good relationships, but also their complete trust in God (Acts 2:42).
