What is Organic Church?
Briefly defined, an organic church is a group of believers in Jesus Christ who are learning to live by the indwelling Lord together. They have left behind the man-made religious system normally referred to as Christianity, along with all of the "baggage" associated with that system. They have embraced Christ alone as their only Life, Center, and Head of the church. They are learning to function as the Body of Christ in order to express His fullness. And they are learning to live together as His house and His family in face-to-face community.
Welcome to OrganicChurch.org
This website is being created for the purpose of introducing and educating believers regarding the origins, planting, sustaining, and experience of the organic expression of the church. (The site is under construction so some of the links may not work yet.)
Root Before Fruit
The fruit will reflect the quality of the internal life of the tree. But it takes time for the fruit to develop so that it is a true expression of the internal life of the tree. In other words, it takes a mature tree to develop fruit. This doesn't happen overnight. However, if the tree is in the proper environment, and it is properly nourished and develops a strong root system, it will produce fruit much sooner.
