What Demons are saying about the Church

“We want the church to be small not only that fewer men may know the Enemy [God] but also that those who do may acquire the uneasy intensity and the defensive self-righteousness of a secret society or clique.” – Uncle Screwtape to Wormwood in Letter 7 (via C. S. Lewis in The Screwtape Letters)

Are You A Christ Follower? by Phil Helfer

For many, following Christ means following those they see as His designated leaders.

Are you a Church Person or a Kingdom Person? by Brad Brisco

Report from Organic/Simple/House Church in UK & Ireland

In 2011 Mission Britain sent out a survey to people involved in simple/organic/house/missional churches in the UK and Ireland. We wanted to see where things were at and what is happening on the ground through these forms of Churches. We have examined the statistics and put together a Report which you can download for free.
