Christian social networking for Bible Study and Spiritual Growth.
The house church movement is not just to get away from the institutional church, but for Christians seeking to return to the small gatherings of peoples that constituted all of the churches of the New Testament era.
The emphasis at this Group is not to criticize the institutional church, but rather to lift up its alternative. Many house churches start among people who first meet in an institutional setting, and regular attendance at a good institutional church is encouraged as a source of Christian teaching.
The fellowship pictured in Mt. 18:20 is "two or three gathered together." Even "church growth" experts point out that an assembly larger than a mere dozen people creates an environment in which some of the people often back away from full participation.
This group does not have any discussions yet.
