Acts Model Community
You are invited to join a new forum called the Acts Model Community, put up by ArkHaven Ministries.
We see the need to prepare our families (physically, mentally, and spiritually) for the hard times we see rushing in on America and the world … very soon.
Worse yet, we feel alone and misunderstood. The church, our family and friends, and indeed the whole world, seems to be asleep and oblivious.
We are looking for like minded Christians who are being led of the Lord as we are (being like minded), so we can encourage and assist each other. We encourage those of other mind sets to form their own forums and stay out of this one.
To minimize disagreements and maximize the potential of helping form communities (including our own), we will continue to be like the Bereans, and study the scripture daily. Isaiah 40:8 The grass withers, the flower fades, but the word of our God stands forever.
We believe in the whole counsel of God, that the Word of God reveals Christ Jesus and His character and nature. We find it hard to improve upon Chuck Missler’s description: “The great discovery is that the Bible is a message system: it’s not simply 66 books penned by 40 authors over thousands of years, the Bible is an integrated whole which bears evidence of supernatural engineering in every detail”!
We do not identify with, nor accept the aberrant doctrines of Dominionism, the Emergent Church, New Age philosophy, Hyper-Charismatic, Preterism, or Replacement Theology. Amos 3:3 Can two walk together, except they be agreed?
See footnotes for a definition of these doctrines.
(We are basically conservative Pentecostal, however have no definite denomination that we adhere to).
The ultimate and future goal of ArkHaven (and perhaps you) is to form a totally self sufficient, “Acts model, Christian community of intentional neighbors” who live off the grid and farm the natural and organic way so we can provide food for ourselves and for the poor and needy. We call this “getting off the grid before the grid goes off.”
We see that Christianity without community is not Christianity as the Apostles taught. It is no coincidence that the Acts model lifestyle we see in the first century church is also the best preparation a Christian can make to sustain life and continue in ministry even in the hardest of times as well as in the best of times. By “Acts model” I am referring to the entire book of Acts. A Christian does not have to practice this concept of Christian community to be saved or to continue in ministry, but we argue that it is a good gift from God to us. Jesus taught this brotherhood concept of giving to His Apostles, and they continued in these teachings. (Most scholars agree that he common purse concept seen in Acts 2 is not a doctrine.)
We hope you are one of those we would love to have join us.
