Creating Home Churches
Our mission views “church” as mission without borders and without walls. Although we are pleased to have a church “building” that operates as the center for mission outreach in Honduras, we strive to encourage the start-up of churches within the homes and literally on the streets where communities can gather. Iglesia Agua de Vida currently operates nine Home Churches that meet each week for study and prayer together. These Home Churches host families and children from the community who may or may not be interested in attending a traditional church program. Each year, hundreds of villagers are reached through these Home Churches. Depending upon the location, as many as sixty to seventy people will gather to participate in a Home Church, often spilling into the street to make space. IMC Directors in the capital city initiate small groups and train others to host friends in their own neighborhoods.
