Book Description

"If you want a sense of what 'true Christianity is, then I heartily recommend the reading of this volume." - Dr. E.A. Johnston

The Scriptures declare that the Gospel of the kingdom will be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come. This preaching and spreading of the Gospel will be done not by the ingenuity of men, but by the working of the Spirit of God. Do you want to be involved with God's work at the end of the age? God uses the simple to confound the wise. His ways are not our ways. We need revival in our countries like what we see in the underground house Churches in China. May God teach, gather, and raise a remnant for His glory.

Learn the following from this volume:
  • Prepare for coming persecution in non-persecuted countries.
  • Learn Principles of how to gather as the Church from the Book of Acts and current underground Churches.
  • Access resources that will help your gathering or house Church meeting.
  • Experience personal revival and the Spirit's empowerment.
From the Foreword:
The time is now. Count the cost. You will be persecuted, tested, and tried. You will be misunderstood, hated by the world, and sometimes hated even by the members of your own household. There will be tears, heartache, tribulation, suffering and pain. But, you will be living for the One who is worthy of all, and whose eternal kingdom cannot be shaken nor ever fade away. You will have the privilege of serving the King of kings and the Lord of all lords. Moreover, you will one day have the awesome indescribable experience of seeing His glorious face and hearing Him call you by name as His own. - brother Brian


Editorial Reviews

Review

What Some Ministry Leaders Are Saying About The Book? 

'The Underground Church is a vague concept to American believers--typically the fodder for Christian movies meant to entertain. But storm clouds are gathering and the religious freedom the Church has enjoyed in the West has been squandered and is now slipping through our fingers--one infringement at a time. For once, the Christian body has received the solution before the problem has arisen and overcome it. This book offers exactly what its title promises: 'Principles for the Gathering of Believers Under the Headship of Jesus Christ.' It is a charter for house churches forced to find their way during a time of hot persecution. The time will come, perhaps sooner than we realize, that we will be glad we have a copy of this book to turn to.'
- Steve Gallagher (Founder of Pure Life Ministries). 

'As the moral and cultural war rages between our shores, the church will continue to be marginalized and persecuted until silenced. The need to be awakened from our spiritual slumber has never been greater. The church of the future, may indeed become the church of the past--gospel fellowships.'
- Shane Idleman (Pastor of Westside Christian Fellowship

'The early Christians lived by the pure Word of God and they were endued with the Spirit of God and they 'turned the world upside down. Theirs was a pure distillation of the Gospel both in deed and proclamation. If you want a sense of what 'true Christianity' is, then I heartily recommend the reading of the volume.
- E.A. Johnston (Author of George Whitefield: A Definitive Biography

About the Author

Gospel Fellowships are fellowships of like-minded believers in Jesus Christ meeting together in autonomous groups of 2-3 or more on a weekly basis under the Headship of Jesus Christ. Gospel Fellowships is not a organization, denomination or nonprofit group but is simply a network of believers who agree with the basic burdens expressed in the Principles Book. Thus, Gospel Fellowships is centered on the fact that there is only one body of Christ universal in the world and that all true disciples of Jesus Christ are a part of that body.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent! June 21, 2013
Format:Paperback
As the Lord's people, we need to know what He is speaking to His church TODAY. We need to know what He desires from us and for us NOW. I was convinced that this was a very special book even before I had gotten through the preface and the introduction, and as I continued reading that feeling was confirmed. This book is not for those who are content with modern-day Christianity, but will be devoured by those who recognize that the Lord's church needs to repent of many things and needs to subject itself to the Headship of Christ; that it needs to begin to fulfill its vocation of being a holy people who demonstrate to the world who Jesus truly is by the way that we live our lives and by the way we love one another.
The authors believe that the day will soon come when we will see world-wide persecution of the church and many of the principles set forth by them are to help prepare the church not only to endure this coming persecution but to thrive in the midst of it.
If you love Jesus and desire to see Him have the church He deserves, I highly recommend reading this book!

5.0 out of 5 stars A timely message for the Western Church June 25, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
I believe wholeheartedly that this is a timely message for the Western Church. Not that the West does not have it's remnants who want to adhere to the New Testament standards, but most I believe are oblivious to the awakening which is to come to America. God is stirring forth a Bride who is consumed with pleasing Him and making Him known throughout the earth. America consists of nationalities from all over the earth, and indeed it makes it beautiful, but we are being challenged by the Satanic forces through media, culture, and other religious beliefs. So we as true Christians must be lukewarm no more, but repent and return back to our first love. Then with great zeal, we can live the type of Christianity we read from the old American saints such as John Wesley, D.L. Moody, A.W. Tozer, Jim Elliot, etc.
I believe there is a hunger from the saints who want this type of 'authentic' Christianity back in America. This book will help us prepare for the future calamaties and persecutions which is to come to America before the Great Coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. We must be prepared to meet in house churches and learn to hold meetings secretly when persecution does come. This book also outlines many of the weaknesses in the modern church and how we can return back to our roots based on Scripture.

May God raise up more Pauls, Timothys, Stephens, and other passionate ones for His glory in these last days.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great resource for the end time Church June 22, 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I believe this will be a very important resource as true Christians continue to be demonized by our sin sick culture. I appreciate the amount of work and the group of seasoned Christian leaders who contributed to this book. As I began reading there were many principles that have been stirring in my heart for years and it is refreshing to see them presented clearly. The simplicity of the early church is what we need to return to and this book is a great tool to begin the process. I ordered 3 hard copies, one to use in family worship and meetings, 2 to give away.

Being a member of a small house church I particularly appreciate the Principles as solid guidlines for us. The extensive scripture references are excellent for confirmation from the Word. The preiminence of Jesus Christ as head of the body is a truth rarely preached today. This book is definately a means of bringing glory to the Son of God through the body of true believers.

5.0 out of 5 stars For Such a Time as This July 27, 2013
Format:Paperback
Thank you for responding to the Lord and providing this wonderful book to the Body of Christ during this critical hour of so many lacking in understanding of the nature and character of God. We need to grow in Christ's likeness by "eating the meat" of His Word rather than pursuing lives diluted by the secular culture. Then, we will be transformed by the Holy Spirit to pursue Kingdom transformation of the world around us. May "Principles" be a useful instrument of calling God's people back to His purpose and destiny!

More About the Author

With over 30,000 registered denominations, the Church in the West is fractured and split into so many groups, in which God calls carnality (1 Corinthians 3:1-5). We are in need for a movement of brothers and sisters coming together to meet under Christ's Lordship and to simply obey Christ's call to discipleship and evangelisation of the world. We don't need more church buildings; we need the kind of true fellowship of the Body of Christ as in the Early Church (Acts 2:42-47). Not denominational churches with men in charge but rather where Jesus Christ is the Head (Colossians 1:18).

Are you looking for like-minded fellowship in your area? Do you want to be fruiful in your walk with Jesus Christ and lead others to become disciples? We invite you to prayerfully consider joining with this movement. It does not necessary mean you need to leave the Church you attend but you would commit to meet during the week with other like-minded believers from all different denominational backgrounds. Gospel Fellowships are fellowships of like-minded believers in Jesus Christ meeting together in autonomous groups of 2-3 or more on a weekly basis under the Headship of Jesus Christ. Gospel Fellowships is not a organization, denomination or nonprofit group but is simply a network of believers who agree with the basic burdens expressed in the Principles Book. Thus, Gospel Fellowships is centered on the fact that there is only one body of Christ universal in the world and that all true disciples of Jesus Christ are a part of that body.

In response to reading the Principles book consider to start a fellowship group under the Headship of Jesus Christ in your local area. Jesus Christ is the focus and great Unity of all true believers may He be glorified in every gathering (see Principle 1 - Solely Looking to the Person of Jesus Christ).
