House Church - Series Summary

To summarize this series, I'm a house church advocate because I believe it is the best model of church life. This is grounded in my belief in the inspiration, authority, and sufficiency of scripture.

Jesus Christ, as Head of His church, has shown us all we need to know in the bible to live as His church in a manner that pleases Him. The house church strives to actively live out what is commanded, what is shown in principle, and what is modeled for the church in the scriptures.

Thanks for combining these posts Eric. I was hoping you would so I can access this series as a resource.

It must be cathartic to be able to express in writing all the wonderful things the Spirit of God has been teaching you through His word and others.

Thanks again!

Thank you Mike.

In saying all I have said, my goal was to help folks understand what I think about the house church. However, I don't want people to think that I think all other forms of church life are bad, evil, wrong, sinful, etc. It can be a struggle to compare and contrast without condemning. I hope I achieved that most of the time.
