Organic, missional, simple, house church. Church drop-outs.
Open to God’s will.

Open to new ideas (each week?).
Open to our city.
Open to ALL people.
Open for YOU.
D * N * A * – Where “DNA” is present among people, there is church.
“D” stands for Divine Truth (loving God/Jesus)
“N” stands for Nurturing Relationships (loving one another deeply)
“A” stands for Apostolic Mission (being on Jesus’ mission to the world)
http://willyfulgencio.wordpress.com/study-topics/ – Why House Church?
… “organic church.”The term is fluid, but it contains at least three ingredients:
- Frustration with the-church-as-we-know-it,
- a focus on people (vs. programs) and mission (vs. institutional maintenance), and
- a vision to transform the world.
- Being Church
- Body of Christ
- Disciples Apostles Mission
- Spirit-led Participation
I can relate to this. Would love to see more.
Anyone who thinks this way near Hamilton, New Zealand?
