At Purpose Church Claremont

Check out this video for a quick explanation
behind the vision for Home Churches.



Home churches are smaller communities of all ages and backgrounds that meet together in homes throughout the week to spend time together, read the Word, pray together, take care of each other and hang out together. But most importantly, home churches take seriously the call of Jesus when he gave the Great Commission.


The video above by Pastor Brian does a good job answering this question. However, in summary, the bottom line is that we want to be the body of Jesus missionally living life together to fulfill the Great Commission -that's it! 

We want to be the church as followers of Jesus, and we feel strongly that scripture shows us this simple and effective model of how to do that.

ACTS 2:42-47

42 And they devoted themselves to the apostles' teaching and the fellowship, to the breaking of bread and the prayers. 43 And awe came upon every soul, and many wonders and signs were being done through the apostles. 44 And all who believed were together and had all things in common. 45 And they were selling their possessions and belongings and distributing the proceeds to all, as any had need. 46 And day by day, attending the temple together and breaking bread in their homes, they received their food with glad and generous hearts, 47 praising God and having favor with all the people. And the Lord added to their number day by day those who were being saved.

MATTHEW 28:18-20

18 And Jesus came and said to them, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 19 Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.”
