What We Are Not PDF Print E-mail

 

We are NOT a "church" as you would typically think of it.  We have no organizational structure. We are not a 501(c)(3) charity. Although there might be people that are considered "elders", we have no heirarchy or decision making authority over anyone other than ourselves. We rely on God to direct.  We will informally support and help each other as we are led.

We are NOT a "movement."  This is not a fad or a flash in the pan.  We're not trying to create something new.  We're trying to restore people to their "first love," to get back to the beginning and do what Christ wanted.  This may seem new and weird in the USA, but it's happening all over the world.

We are NOT leader-driven.  Once people can tell the difference between Truth and not-quite-Truth and have a wide, clear communication with Jesus, they are fully capable of accomplishing that for which He has made them.  Each person has their part to play, some more high-profile than others.  That doesn't mean they're in charge.

We are NOT about seeking manifestations or signs or wonders or miracles.  We are about Truth.  Now ... we think that if you get enough Truth in you and you are entirely inside the will of God it's likely that some really unusual things may start happening.   But we seek God because He is God - whether those things happen or not is up to Him.  If we seek God FOR those things, it is idolatry. Any good thing that comes is to His glory, not ours.  We're to worship and seek the Creator, not the creation.  And if those things DO happen, they need to happen inside of the instructions described in God's Word.

We are NOT going to tell anyone how to serve or how much to give or to whom.  We have done so much damage to the world and confused so many people that everything is upside down and now most people will accept anything anywhere close to Truth.  All we're trying to do is get everyone's ears tuned back in to Truth.  Then God will tell them what to do.
