  • By 'simple church', we mean the kind of church that is described in the New Testament. Not constrained by structure but by the needs of the extended family and a desire to extend the Kingdom of God.
  • By 'simple church', we mean a church that listens to God, follows His leading and obeys His commands without the excessive baggage of "Churchianity."
  • By 'simple church', we mean spiritual parents raising spiritual sons and daughters to establish their own families (new churches).
  • By 'missional' we mean that the core identity of each Simple Church is to penetrate and transform society by obeying the command of Jesus to 'go and make disciples of all nations.'
  • By 'network' we mean that these churches will cooperate together (unity in purpose). They will pool finances, launch missional projects, support ministry teams and celebrate together as one in Christ.
