  • Why was this site started?

    slide06.jpgLet us begin with a very important fact. The goal of the site is not to criticize traditional or institutional churches. Yes, some of the articles make comparisons and some of the writers do strongly question traditional practices. However, those of us who have created this site did so for several reasons:

  • What is 'simple church'?

    slide02.jpgSome call them house churches. Some call them organic churches. Some call them simple churches. We prefer to just call them churches. They are rapidly multiplying, simple communities of believers, meeting in homes, offices, campuses, wherever God is moving. This is the pattern common to many parts of the globe, and is now becoming more and more common in the U.S. as well.

  • Incarnational Practices

    slide05.jpgYou are church before you do church. This is one of the fueling insights of the missional church movement. This isn't a new idea...but it is pretty provocative, especially when one considers its implications. If we take Jesus at his word when he says (as recorded in John 20:21) "as the Father has sent me, I am sending you," then we realize that our being sent is the basis of our "doing" church. In oth...

  • What is an Organic Church?

    slide04.jpg Organic Church. I've been using this term for around fifteen years now. Today it's become somewhat of a clay word, being molded and shaped to mean a variety of different things by a variety of different people.

    T. Austin-Sparks is the man who deserves credit for this term. Here's his definition:

3 question study

One of the best ways to help people discover and respond to God is

to ask them simple questions in response to hearing or reading a Bible passage.

There are three questions that can turn even the mention of a Bible verse into a meaningful discovery experience.

Here are the questions of a 3 question study
:

1. What does this passage say about God?

Simply asking this question underscores two important truths: God is the most important reality, and people can learn about him directly from the Bible.

2. What does this passage say about people?

This question highlights two more truths: the Bible is relevant to every person, and every person needs the Bible's perspective to more completely understand who they are.

3. If what this passage says is true, what is one thing you will do?

Asking this question points to two final truths: the Bible calls us to obedience, and it is only God who can convince people of the Bible's authority.

Yo
ur turn:

Think of a non-Christian with whom you could imagine doing a 3 question study; what is their name?
What passage or verse would you use in a 3 question study with him or her, and how would you begin?
How can you hold yourself accountable to leading a 3 question study with that person?
