What is Simple Church?

You Come Together" DVD from Karis Publishing

Have you heard of the recent Home Church Movement?
Small groups of Christians who meet together informally in each other's Homes - sometimes referred to as Simple Church. People love it....there are over 30,000 in the USA and many more in other Countries! They are growing in Australia now as well.
The following links may be of some interest to you.
I found these Pages while researching Simple Church.
Please Note: If I had to agree with everything that is on a Website, I probably
would not place links on my Websites. While taking some measure of care into what links
I provide, I think that it is up to you, what you agree with or otherwise, just as it is
with me. So including the above links does not mean that I endorse and agree with

Metomorphis - Butterfly
It appears that the Church (Body of Believers in Christ) is undergoing a Metomorphis in recent years
from a Lifeless man-made Traditional Church System (Mainline and Evangelical) that does not foster
a Healthy-Growth or Image of Believers in Jesus to those looking on.....but rather, it has made the name of Christ and Church "Bywords among the Nations" like Israel, when they did not follow
GOD'S VOICE or PATTERN.
The Church was meant to be a Different Picture to this!
Not an added burden to the Believer and the World.....but meant to be a TRUE FAMILY Environment
for the believer in small Cell Groups of His Body, not some traditional mid-week meetings.
Because of the way believer's lives are Transformed and Fresh....and the
INDWELLING and MOVING
of the Holy Spirit with us revealing the Heart and Life of Jesus in Us
and our Love for One-another
would be like the Early Church who "changed the world up-side-down"
those living nearby from house to house sought them out
"We want to be just like You....we want what you Have....we need This Savior!"
FOR NOW until this CHANGE FULLY TAKES PLACE
the Metomorphis will continue to take place_ a growing discontent and concern among Christians
with the way things are in the "Church System"
a Myriad of refreshed Believers in isolated and clusters of Home Churches known for
an Organic and Simple way of living Church.
Many of these believers are like BUTTERFLIES already
needs are met and Christ is in the Midst!!!

It was my sincere privilege 6-7 years ago to discover the SpiritLed.com.au Website!
I purchased 3 Books and matching CDs by Stuart Gramenz as my immediate response:
Where is Church....Beyond Tradition....and....I've got you Covered.
They would have to be the most Balanced and Life Changing writings and audios I have
found in relation to the way Christians did things in the Early Church and how to
facilitate and function in them for believers TODAY.
As someone said, Traditional Churches are into making Clones with Cookie Cutters.
JESUS did not Equip OR intend for HIS BODY to be That Way.
It simply is not Scriptural_ either in the Words of Christ
or behavior of the Early Apostles.
You won't find it in any Church History from 1st - 3rd Centuary
that's 300 years!
Our Lord and Savior paid a very HIGH PRICE to Redeem Us
to Set up HIS Church the way He wanted it!
It's Time for Awakening
I just came across this Simple Church Christian Blog by Tom Wymore
called Simple Church Reflections that will Bless many of you as it has me!
He is a (real) Theologian who Intimately knows God.....and a Spiritual Father in the Faith.

HOW WOULD YOU LIKE YOUR CHRISTIAN WALK AND CHURCH INVOLVEMENT TO BE?
The Lord is presenting a CHOICE to us TODAY like He did in the days of Israel
to choose Life or death.
The Traditional Church System is dying......it has been for some time
but the SPIRIT of GOD is MOVING once again throughout the earth saying
COME TO THE WATERS THAT DO NOT RUN DRY!
We were never meant to feel dry and lifeless....AND....the world around us is meant to say
"THERE'S WATER, I'M GOING THERE
ME AND MY FAMILY!"
Where are the House-hold Salvations there were in the Book of Acts?
They're coming, they're already starting to Appear
But they're not on the 'Church Scene' they're on the Home Scene
where families belong....and gathering like relatives with other brothers and sisters
in Home Churches....in Parks and the Beach etc
THE FATHER IS GETTING HIS FAMILY BACK AGAIN - THE WAY HE LIKES IT
Very soon, I will have a PDF on godly behavior among Christians - what it is and is not.
I had an unpleasant experience 2 days ago and it has not been the first
that causes me again to think "this needs to be addressed" so when my thoughts are
settled, I will tackle this, with the help of the Holy Spirit.
I firmly believe that "walking in love" is a requirement for each one of us at all times -
not when it suits. And if you have said upsetting words or offended a brother or sister,
don't play 'hit and run'.....The Lord is not happy with that. Too many people have left the Faith even, because of so much of this type of behavior.
By Grace, Jesus takes all types into His Family.....and there is often a carry-over of old behavior patterns in communications (certain character traits) that don't die quickly with the old life (before Christ). Sad to say, even those in ministry sometimes display this. Fortunately, The Lord brought 3 Christians along side of me with vindication and loving, uplifting words this time and also another time 3 years ago. Many of you have not had that blessing and I want to encourage you.
