We are a people who are called to be free and that means free from the traditions of men and the power struggles of the modern religious corporations and companies.
Gathering does not require a dedicated building which demands our money and energy for its upkeep and development. Our own homes will serve us well. Our gathering does not require a collection of money, in fact we don’t need to give anything except our love for a brother and sister in need and yes that may mean someone chooses to support a family member financially. We don’t have salaried leaders, large buildings or expensive sound equipment to maintain. Your money and what you do with it is between you and the One who actually owns 100% of everything you have.
We have one Father, Teacher and Leader and that is Jesus. Our gatherings do not present an opportunity to climb a ladder of leadership. We are all equal as brothers and sisters in Christ. There are those that have opted to climb down the ladder to lead by the example of obedience to Christ. This is the highest form of leadership which has no dominion over the family but gives itself to sacrifice and surrender all they have for the body. These leaders or elders are accepted by brothers and sisters as those that are able to teach, serve and give an example of obedience to Christ.
2 Corinthians 8:12-14
