Psalm 115:1

I get bored easily. That’s why I find the Lord so fascinating. He never wears out, and He’s full of surprises.


I used to like walking into Christian bookstores and investigating the books on their shelves. But I quit. Why? Because I could no longer abide the festival of pop Christianity.


The vast majority of local Christian bookstores carry stocks of pop Christian books, and rarely (if ever) carr...

Pagan Christianity? by Frank Viola
"Riveting and Impactful!

I struggled for years with many of the practices that are found in Institutional Church and covered in this book. After reading this book I've learned why I've never been comfortable with them and never quite fit into the tr..." Read more of this review »
Pagan Christianity? by Frank Viola
"Eye-opening

For years I have been impressed by the Lord that there was something inherently wrong and was unsettled more and more as I pursued being "in ministry". After reading this book I know exactly why. I have tasted the pureness of a real rel..." Read more of this review »
Pagan Christianity by Frank Viola
"This is the third time over the last few years that I've read this book and the first as an audiobook. It is excellent! I highly recommend it. "

“In fact, I’ve met countless believers who have said, “The church is an organism, not an organization.” Yet as they formed those very words, they continued to be devout members of churches that were organized along the lines of General Motors and Microsoft.”
Frank Viola, Reimagining Church: Pursuing the Dream of Organic Christianity

“In short, the goal of the gospel is not to get you out of hell and into heaven, but to get God out of heaven and into you so that He may be displayed visibly and glorified in His creation.”
Frank Viola, Revise Us Again: Living from a Renewed Christian Script

“ORGANIC CHURCH
The term organic church does not refer to a particular model of church. (We believe that no perfect model exists.) Instead, we believe that the New Testament vision of church is organic. An organic church is a living, breathing, dynamic, mutually participatory, every-member-functioning, Christ-centered, communal expression of the body of Christ.”
Frank Viola, Pagan Christianity: Exposing the Roots of Our Church Practices
