Embarking on a Journey of Gospel Transformation through House Churches


House Church

We're diving into some deep waters here, exploring the heart of what it means to form Kingdom communities through House Churches.


Before we jump into the nitty-gritty of "how-tos" and answers to the burning questions we all have, let's take a step back and examine the core challenges. It might get a bit uncomfortable, but trust me, this journey into understanding the problem is absolutely worth it.


As we unpack the puzzle, remember that the church should embody four essential qualities:

  1. Reaching Not Yet Believers: Our mission is to bring the Gospel to those who haven't heard it yet, guiding them into a transformative relationship with Christ.

  2. Making Mature Disciples: It's about more than just conversion; it's nurturing individuals to grow into deeply committed, reproducing followers of Jesus.

  3. Creating Deep Kingdom Community: The church is family, a community where we experience the love of God through genuine connections with brothers and sisters.

  4. Multiplying: Our structure should naturally lead to multiplication, spreading the Gospel and its impact across neighborhoods and cities.

Imagine if one of these vital elements is missing. Picture a single mom with countless kids but no stable home. Or someone who are well-taught but disconnected from the warmth of a spiritual family. We can't ignore any of these facets because they're intricately woven into the fabric of God's Kingdom.


Today's church structures often excel in one or two aspects, but rarely all four. We are on a journey to change that within the River City family. Let's nurture a holy discontent that drives us to pursue the fullness of what Jesus designed for His Church. This journey won't be a walk in the park, because the stakes are high – we're talking about fulfilling the Great Commission and embodying the Kingdom in all its glory.


There are two kinds of people: those content with the status quo and those with a holy jealousy for what the Church is meant to be. We're inviting you to be the latter. Let's roll up our sleeves, challenge patterns, and embrace the discomfort. It's all for the sake of God's Kingdom, for those who haven't yet experienced the depth of His love.


Buckle up, folks. We're in for an adventure that promises nothing less than the transformation of lives, neighborhoods, and our city.
