Abstract
In the course of studying on the role of peacemakers, I found an exemplary model. That is The House Church. The House Church is led by a layman who acts as a shepherd and carries out many of the responsibilities of a full-time pastor. The House Church is composed of 6 to 12 members who meet together on a weekly basis at member’s home. It is a faith community which engages in the Christian acts of worship, education, fellowship, witnessing and mission. The purpose of the House Church is to recover vitality of the first century church’s faith community. The House Church overcomes the limitations of a passive religious church life that only focuses on worship formation and Bible study-based discipleship. The House Church is geared towards witnessing to unbelievers and in so doing, fulfilling the church’s original purpose of “saving the lost and making disciples of Jesus Christ”. The House Church accomplishes this by helping unbelievers to accept Jesus as their LORD and Savior and by inviting unbelievers to be true disciples through servant hood. The layman gains understanding and becomes a partner with the head pastor by experiencing the pastor’s tasks through the successes and the adversities of serving the House Church members. The House Church calls for and provides an environment to nurture members as they learn to practice scripturally based living and in so doing members become true Disciples of Christ. A healthy peacemaker makes a healthy church. The pastors must determine the direction of their pastoral duties in an effective manner. And a specialized and more detailed leadership by the lay believers should be encouraged within the church.
