In a very different way, the flexibility inherent within the house church (simple church, organic church) is also impressive.
Simply put, the house church can do whatever needs to be done to both edify the body and reach out to the lost. There are no institutional or tradition-based restraints upon this flexibility. The church can and should do whatever needs to be done. If the members see in scripture that they need to believe and/or live differently about a specific issue, change can occur immediately.
Let me provide an example. Let's say that a house church normally gathers together on Sundays for the purpose of mutual edification. Someone in the body finds out that there is a specific need in the broader community that they can meet on Sunday. Instead of gathering in the home, the church comes together to perform service to meet that need.
The key is that anything can change at any time in order to better be the church. This includes all sorts of things such as meeting location, meeting times, meeting frequency, meeting content, types of service, areas of service focus, methods of evangelism, international missions outreach, etc., etc., etc.
This flexibility is of great benefit to the members of the body and to the community as a whole. Of course, as with everything else in this extended series on the house church, flexibility is only beneficial if we strive to glorify God through serving others. If we fail to live with the attitudes of servants, then the shape of our church life won't really matter.
May we all be flexible, communal servants following after our Master - Jesus Christ.
