More than church

More Than Church

Is there more?
There is more!
Let’s open up the door.
Let’s all open our mouths
And let the Spirit soar!
Testify, glorify.
Don’t deny the Lord!
Edify, magnify,
It’s Him who we adore.
Out of Judea
Came ekklesia;
It’s God’s idea.
It’s what we’re called for!
(1 Corinthians 14:26)

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 @

One Response to More than church

  1. my son recently went to Camp Keystone here in FL for F.O.F. and on the way home he said to a fellow perspective candidate, “when i am an officer i want to use Sunday afternoon as a chance to reach out to those on the street and encourage them to come join us for Salvation Meetings!”

    The fellow Perspective candidate said, “you won’t have time for that!”

    to which my son said, “if we don’t have time for that then we are not doing our job.”

    He currently goes to the Clearwater Corps and after the night meeting the Lord has lead them to go to the C.O.’s house for a deeper fellowship with young adults (a great need for that Corps)

    Thank you for this inspiring post!
