Setelah merenungkan dengan teliti, saya percaya inilah jenis pelayanan masa depan gereja yang sesuai dengan Alkitab ajarkan.


  • From meeting centered to life centered. 
  • From upward growth to outward growth. 
  • From super organization to simple organism (the opposite of hierarchy / reverse pyramid. Pyramid is anarchy). 
  • From bringing people to church to bringing church to people. 
  • From social respectability to salt and light (they turned the world upside down). 
  • From tenth to total in New Testament giving. 
  • From titles to function. 
  • From Independence to interdependence (from wallwide church to the citywide church ... organizational unity to spiritual unity). 
  • From presbytery without the people to presbytery with the people (Acts 15:22). 
  • From building centered leaders to people centered leaders. 
  • From performance by professionals to "everyone of you"(1 Chor 14:26). 
  • From pastor only to fivefold ministries (all the gifts God gave). 
  • From church houses to house churches. 
  • From self to God. 
  • From inreach to outreach. 
  • From events to relationship. 
  • From ministers to equippers. 
  • From consumers to contributors. 
  • From a church mentality to a kingdom mentality. 
  • From living in the past to enganging with the present. 
  • From market-driven to mission-oriented. 
  • From bureaucratic hierarchies to apostolic networks. 
  • From schooling professionals to mentoring leaders. 
  • From following celebrities to encountering saints. 
  • From dead orthodoxy to living faith. 
  • From attracting a crowd to seeking the lost. 
  • From belonging to believing. 
  • From generic congregations to incarnational communities. 
  • From christianity to Christ (not a philosophy, a movement, or a religion, but JESUS). 
  • From special priesthood to priesthood of all believers (called to sacrifice and intercede). 
  • From worshipping our worship to worshipping Jesus (worship is more than singing song). 
  • From symbolism to substance in the Lord is supper (take it often). 
  • From denomination to spirit-led networks (association of home churches). 
  • From program based church to home based church (liturgical, evangelical, informal). 
  • From the seminary system to the apprentice system. 
  • From selective submission to spiritual recognition (submit to God-ordained authority). 
  • From paper membership to Body membership (we are members of one another). 
  • From the wheel to the vine (releasing teams to plant simple churches in homes). 
  • From organizational unity to spiritual unity (there is only one step to unity). 
  • From "us and them" to "us" (refuse to allow a divisive spirit to enter your fellowship). 
  • From planned church only to spontaneous church also (recognize ecclesia).
