All across the world, people are gathering in small groups to serve and worship God, be family, and encourage and affect each others lives.  These gatherings are called by many names including simple church, organic church, and house church.  Whatever you call it, the people involved value incarnational ministry to the lost, living radically for Jesus and each other, and are willing to get rid of anything that gets in the way of being fully devoted followers of Christ. 

So this site is not about promoting a model or strategy, but to encourage a return to the simple call that Jesus gave to all of us to be and make disciples. More and more believers are awakening to the fact that in many cases we have made our churches so complex that we have obscured the importance of having Christ as Head of His Church and Jesus as Lord of our lives, and we have lost the simplicity of making disciples of Jesus.

We pray that God would use this site to encourage, envision, and also to connect, report and resource these new groups. If you are starting or already a part of a simple or organic church and would like to learn together with us please go to the contact page and send us your information.

Special Note: The simple (or organic) church movement is made of all kinds of people from all kinds of denominations and backgrounds. We have tried to primarily present articles that are written from a positive viewpoint. Some writers(and also bloggers, and other participants of our site), however, present their ideas in a strong contrast to more traditional views of church. We do not want to offend our readers. It would, however, not be appropriate for us to edit these articles, so instead we present them in their entirety so that each reader can get a full understanding of what different people are saying and decide for himself how these principles and thoughts apply to their own situation.

We don’t expect you to agree with every word you read here, and neither do we. However, it is important that we join this global dialogue that is occurring, so that we can discern what God is speaking to us both as individuals and as churches. Read, pray, dialogue, and may God speak to us all about how we can be the disciples and bride He has called us to be.
