The Simple Church Alliance is a network, or “alliance,” of simple churches originating in Central Kentucky in 2010. A desire for simplicity, to be the Church through its most essential elements (the Great Commandment) so that the Body of Christ can multiply (The Great Commission) defines our core. Thus, we seek not to plant churches, but to make disciples, trusting that God will organically grow His church as we go. Today we exist to promote and encourage the following core values throughout the region:
What Is Simple Church?
The church is the family of believers who are “called out” to be the physical representation of Christ to the world. It’s not a building or a service.
God’s people and His Church naturally multiplies through loving relationships. We strive to avoid artificial barriers to this organic multiplication process.
All believers are “priests” and thus ministers with different gifts for serving God’s people. Jesus Christ is the head of the Church, not man
The Great Commission (making disciples of all the nations) fullfilled by the church as Jesus’ followers live out the New Commandment he gave: “As I have loved you, so love one another” (John 13:34)
The Bible reveals to us the character and nature of God. It is instructive and authoritative on all matters of life.
To see a multiplication movement of disciples of Jesus and ultimately simple churches beginning here in Central Kentucky and reaching to the ends of the earth
We believe this is God’s heart and we desire to help encourage and promote this vision by encouraging and equipping others to
- Express Christ daily through relationships
- Connect with Christ and His family weekly in simple church families
- Celebrate Christ with extended family through this website, and periodic network gatherings.
