Organic Church Planting Mexico and Beyond

Known by different names, organic churches are modeled after the first century church mentioned in the book of Acts. There are no church buildings, no sound systems, no paid clerics, just groups of 12-15 people who meet, worship, fellowship, and eat together in homes. In Mexico as in many developing nations there is often a shortage of funds for traditional church growth. In the past this lack has usually been picked up by loving churches from the U.S. Unfortunately this often creates an unhealthy dependence and a traditional model that can only be sustained and multiplied with more cash from America.

Christian Discipleship

Organic church is based primarily on casual fellowship in a family like setting which often includes a meal. Here people can discover truth together through relational Bible study, and the guidance of the Holy Spirit. Dialog is emphasized, as is life application of what is revealed. In time trust develops and for those that persevere, intimacy, accountability and loving community. While there is an obvious house church movement that is thriving in many parts of the world today, we consider ourselves pioneers in discovering how to present this concept in the context of Latin Culture.

Tepic, Nayarit Mexico

Our Spanish website La Iglesia En Casas is an essential tool for connecting with others throughout the Spanish-speaking world who may have already received an organic church vision. It seems that God is working with many people all over the Globe, but often they are unknown to one another. So far we have made contact with over 800 of these. Through our newsletter, La Nueva Reforma (The New Reformation) we provide encouragement and practical ideas for those who are starting an organic church, and for those who are looking for a church we are able to make referrals from our growing directory of churches.

While plagued by drug-war-violence for over a year, our town recently began experiencing a time of peace. We attribute this new season to the fervent prayers of the saints, both here in Tepic as well as friends and supporters in the U.S. We continue to intercede and asking God to send his Holy Spirit to tear down ancient strongholds of corruption, violence and apathy, that still hold this town in bondage.

“Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” (Matthew 28:19)

We welcome your friendship, We covet your prayers.
God Bless You,
Cody, Sol and Paloma Smith
