The organic church is an attempt to do just that. It's based in the belief that living things grow naturally. Its based in the conviction that "kingdom" things are organic things -- they start small and eventually reproduce. Organic church planters don't think about planting a church. They think more like the Apostle Paul - about churching a region. While churches following organic principles often meet in homes, they are not - by definition - about a building, whether the building has a steeple on the roof…or a chimney.
The organic church is as old as the early church meeting from house to house. But for many of us it's a new thing. These days we are seeing global shifts of massive proportions and it has become very appropriate to get back to our roots as believers. Missionaries and martyrs have shown us the way in China and India, for example. But it can happen, it should happen, here in North America - and beyond - for the glory of God and the gladness of all peoples!
