You found us! Yes, there are communities of believers in Tennessee who are committed to gathering together with one another without all of the additives usually seen in most institutional churches. We just want to keep it simple. Some even call us 'simple churches'. Are objective is simple, too - love God, love others, and teach each one to do likewise.
If you're not familiar with 'organic church' then we want to help inform you, as well. Just look around and if you have any questions, feel free to ask.
I think Frank Viola has said it best - "an organic expression of the church is one in which the members are learning to live by Divine LIFE together. They are learning how to live by the indwelling Christ. And out of that living emerges a particular expression. That expression, because it’s derived from LIFE, is “organic.” When the church is living true to herself . . . as an organism . . . her expression is organic. The means and end is Jesus Christ. Christ is known deeply by a group of people who are discovering His infinite riches together and are making Him visible on the planet again."
Jesus' words were very simple in Matthew 18:20, "For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them." He did not say they had to be doing certain things in order for him to be in their midst, just gathered together in his name.
The Apostle Paul gave us a little insight into the nature of early church gatherings in I Cor. 14:26:
We would be glad to help you! But first, pray. You may want to ask God to show you others in your area that are seeking Jesus above all things and relationship with other brothers and sisters in Christ. If you already have a few families that are interested in community, then just start meeting and seeking Him together. If you still need help and encouragement, then just contact us and we will serve you in whatever way we can.
