I'm not sure who said this, but I was listening to the church planting podcast the other day and heard this: "New churches need to pass the Catacombs Test: If it can't be done if the church has to go underground then it's a non-essential."

This really has me thinking and goes right along with Hub City's desire to keep it simple. We think we need so much to do church when all we really need is to be the church.

Our mission/vision/strategy/process for discipleship is - We exist to make disciples who make disciples by creating a church that 20 and 30 somethings want to be a part of where they can hear from God and do what he says. We don't need bells and whistles to pull this off. We don't need a lot of money to pull this off. We just need intentional relationships, the Bible and the Spirit.

I love that quote... Not that the extras are "bad" (that's what I have to get past), but if we are depending on those things which are unnecessary to life as the church, we are hindering the essentials-- intentional relationships, the Bible, and the Spirit. Those are the things that are indispensable. That is where our time, money, effort, focus need to be to make a real difference.
