Ministry of The Van Nattan Family
YOUR zeal must be freshly inspired of the Lord daily. The father is the leader and pastor of his own home, and one of the fathers in every house church will be the leader of that assembly.
The gathering of the saints, whether in a fixed location unbiblically named a "church," or where two Bible believers gather in a coffee shop..... that gathering must be an oasis, not an agitation with chatter and sloppy talk about worldly rubbish, politics, and how to restore the Second Amendment of the US Constitution. All Bible believers are ambassadors according to the Apostle Paul in 2 Corinthians 5:18-21. While you must consider the home of a Christian to be an embassy of heaven, we need to avoid that term because it has been stolen by Reconstructionists and Christian Militia types. Sad!
So examine these principles to see if they fit with the Word of God, and work out your own salvation with fear and trembling. The Spirit of God will teach you all the things you need for a normal church life from the Word of God.
Thus, if I hear that you solve problems with the statement, "Pastor Steve says.....," I will know that I have failed to help you come into the perfection which is only found in Jesus Christ. If the following can be of some small blessing in your church life for teaching purposes, praise God.
The Political Issue and Caesar
Pastor Coffia makes a clear distinction between the individual Christian's duty to pay his taxes to Caesar, while the Lord's Church must be separated from Caesar. This is rare and very refreshing, for it is almost always found the unregistered church people are tax rebels. The two issues are an apples and oranges issue-- they must not be mixed up as if they are the same thing.
You must leave local churches that are in love with buildings.
Like the Anabaptists long ago, we must dedicate ourselves to NOT consider stone piles to be church. Only born again people are "Church" in the Bible. The word "church" on a sign on the boulevard borders on blasphemy.
Wrong Reasons for Starting a House Church
For novelty, or because Harry thinks it is cool
Because you are too lazy to find a Bible based church
For power over people
To enforce your own patented law code
Right Reasons for Starting a House Church
Because you want to exalt God with the saints
Because assemblies in the area are brutish,
heretical, use funny Bibles, or are political
Because you are starved for the Word
Because you are very far from Bible believing fellowship

Pastoral Authority versus Serving the Sheep

Who is "Called" to Lead?
All godly men must participate in decision making
IS THE ONE-PASTOR SYSTEM OF CHURCH LIFE SCRIPTURAL?
This is a serious look at the problem of the One Man show of having a ruling pastor. The Brethren assembly is the option considered, and it may well be the most biblical option and the most honoring to the Holy Ghost.
They are not the center of attention, nor are they to be neglected
What needs do they have?
To flee youthful lusts
To love the Word of God
To learn to relate to adults and the church as a family
They do NOT benefit from entertainment
Protect them from Neo-Nazi Baptists, Charismaniacs,
Satanic school and social influence, and from Hellywood
Put them to work-- If they refuse, rebuke their parents
THINGS FOR KIDS-- Resources and stories for kids.
We must require all Fundamentalists to read from this
section so that you do not repeat the same dumb things again.
THE GOSPEL-- Be sure all who come to you are born again
MUCH ASSURANCE-- Many wounded sheep need assurance badly
There are House Churches appearing which are for
the sole purpose of destroying local churches
Including links to other Web ministries
The same liberals and goofy nuts who troubled the local church of brick and mortar, which we left to move into the homes, are now taking over the House Church movement. The House Church is very vulnerable. Why? Answer: Satan sees the close and open mind of the House Church, and he is sending tender hearted creeps to parasite off of the House Churches. Woman preachers, sodomites, Diotrophese, and "every filthy bird" are knocking at the door pretending to just adore our genuineness and biblical ways. You better be wise a serpents and harmless as doves.
