House Church is a term sometimes used in the way we use the term Simple Church. It can be confusing in that:
A Simple Church may or may not meet in a house (it can meet anywhere).
Church Planting Movements
Church Planting Movements occur when simple churches multiply rapidly.
This is a Very Old “New” Idea
Churches in the New Testament were most often small gatherings that met in homes.
“Greet Priscilla & Aquila, my fellow workers in Christ Jesus. They risked their lives for me. Not only I but all the churches of the Gentiles are grateful for them. Greet also the church that meets at their house.” Romans 16:3-4
“But when the Jews opposed Paul and became abusive, he shook out his clothes in protest and said to them, ‘Your blood be on your own heads! I am clear of my responsibility. From now on I will go to the Gentiles.’ Then Paul left the synagogue and went next door to the house of Titius Justus, a worshiper of God.” Acts 18:6-7
Does ‘simple’ mean lower quality?
Absolutely not! While no structure or format can guarantee quality, we believe that the small, participatory, family-like environment of a simple church is ideally suited to the goal of helping people become passionate disciples of Jesus Christ.
