He Lives

  As they were eating, Jesus took bread, and when he had blessed, he broke it, and gave to them, and said, “Take, eat. This is my body.” Mar_14:22

He took bread, and when he had given thanks, he broke, and gave it to them, saying, “This is my body which is given for you. Do this in memory of me.” Luk_22:19

JOHN 3:16

For God so loved the world, that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish, but have eternal life. John 3:16

If I told you earthly things and you don’t believe, how will you believe if I tell you heavenly things?  John 3:12 

You Must Be Born Again

  Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.  John 3:3

  For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.  John 3:17

Come follow me

Jim & Tricia’s Missionary Work

In 1985, Jim and Tricia traveled to Europe with eurail passes and backpacks and met Christians. The next year, they once again desired to be missionaries, sold the little they had and gave the money away , according to Mark 10:21 (“Sell everything you have and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. Then come, follow Me.”) One man they blessed with a cash gift was a stranger Jim met, who had just been released from prison – who later came to be a powerful missionary. Jim and Tricia believed then that God would give them a mission, and prayed for revelation and guidance.

House Church

In 1987-1988, Jim and Tricia opened their home to others, a true house church, and a few families joined them in the ministry. They lived together and had everything in common. That spring God called Jim and Tricia to Israel. They went with one-way plane tickets, meeting/camping with other Disciples in the desert, seeking the Lord Yahshua – Jesus the Christ – through fasting and prayer. They met with Christians and non-Christians in Jerusalem and Bethlehem.

triumph in Christ

In these tremendous end-times Jesus Christ rises as Lord and promises, “Yet once more I will shake not the earth only but also of heavens.  This phrase, ‘Yet once more’, indicates the removal of what is shaken…in order that what cannot be shaken will remain.  The Kingdom which we are given is unshakable; let us therefore give thanks to God, and so worship him as he would be worshiped, with reverence and awe; for our God is a consuming fire (Hebrews 12).”

Is This Revolutionary?

Is this concerned-fellowship, church-in-the-home idea which many have proposed during the past several decades revolutionary?  It most certainly is not revolutionary in the sense that it is something new.  It is as old as Christianity.  It only seems revolutionary because our whoredom Churchianity has departed so far from New Testament Kingdom-of-God Christianity.  If in its simplicity and reality the practice of Bible-patterned Christianity appears radical, it is because the Churchianity of Christendom has made a travesty of that type of Christianity which “turned the world upside down” and in one generation swept over the world.  The then known world was relatively much larger than is our One-World of today.
