SERMON INFO

The early church met almost exclusively in the private homes of its members. The main reason for this may have been persecution. Regardless of why they did it, the fact is that every New Testament letter that was written to an illegal congregation that met secretly in someone's home. This necessarily meant that each congregation was smaller rather than larger—not thousands of people in a single congregation, not hundreds in the same gathering, but scores of believers. Arguably, the ecclesiology presented in the epistles was designed to work in smaller contexts. Since the typical pastor then was bi-vocational, this first century, small-church ecclesiology is worth considering!
