PC (Participatory Church) is awesome!

PC is awesome!

PC (Participatory Church) allows the living, resurrected Jesus Christ to actively fulfill His role as Head of the Church — not just be a figurehead.

PC (Participatory Church) fulfills the words of Jesus:  “For where two or three gather in My name, there am I with them,” (Matthew 18:20) by letting His Presence be actively demonstrated during church services.

PC (Participatory Church) lets ordinary people obey the Holy Spirit during the meeting and say and/or do whatever He tells them to.

PC (Participatory Church) builds loving, heart-felt community.

PC (Participatory Church) releases spiritual gifts in our midst.

PC (Participatory Church) creates a sense of awe like in the early church:  “Everyone was filled with awe,” (Acts 2:43).

PC (Participatory Church) develops a strong hunger for the Bible in everyday people as they search the Scriptures to learn more about what they are experiencing in church meetings.

PC (Participatory Church) changes lives and develops passionate, mature Christ-followers.

PC  (Participatory Church) literally fulfills this Scripture:  “But if an unbeliever or someone who does not understand comes in while everybody is prophesying, he will be convinced by all that he is a sinner and will be judged by all, and the secrets of his heart will be laid bare. So he will fall down and worship God, exclaiming, ‘God is really among you!'” (1 Corinthians 14:24-25.)

The principle of PC works like this:  When water is released to flow into a dry, thirsty land, life begins to flourish.  When the living, resurrected Jesus Christ is released to freely flow in church meetings, spiritual awaking flourishes!  PC 4 me!

About Steve Simms

I like to look and think outside the box. In college I encountered Jesus Christ and I have been passionate about trying to get to know Him better ever since. My wife and I co-lead a non-traditional expression of the body of Christ in Nashville based on open participation and Spirit-led sharing. We long to see the power and passion of the first Christ-followers come to life in our time. I have written a book about our experiences called, "Beyond Church: An Invitation To Experience The Lost Word Of The Bible--Ekklesia" that is available in Kindle & paperback @ http://amzn.to/2nCr5dP

  1. Have you thought of intentionally integrating social media sharing into your services? There is a corps in Australia who have been talking to me about making Social Media Soldiers a intrigal part of every program.
    For example: Everyone posts on Foursquare that they are at the Berry Street Salvation everytime they come to any activity at the Corps.
    Tweeting the sermon titles, text, illustrations. Posting on FB that they are going to the corps, or inviting friends thru FB. During the welcome fellowship time, encourage people to take selfies with one another and post it on Pinterest, Intsagram, Tumbler, FB etc.

    Great idea, Robyn. I promote the corps a whole lot on Facebook, Twitter, and my blog. However, I need to get others doing so as well.
