|Who we are.||Tim, Judy, Mary, Sam, and Anna. Living on a small farm on the prairie. We home school, house church, and have a home business. Please feel free to ask us about anything.|
|Why the "Pioneer" theme?||In the history of the United States, a pioneer
was often a person who left the "old world" for a home and a new
life in the "new world". This is supposed to be what happens
when a person becomes a Christian. The classic book "Pilgrim's
Progress" also describes a journey to escape entanglement with a world hostile
to Jesus so that we can arrive at our destination which is Christian
maturity and Christ-likeness.
| Understanding Christianity -
Christianity can be perplexing to both those unfamiliar with it as well as Christians themselves. These eight short videos help explain many of the elements of Christianity.
|Hasn't the world already heard enough about Christianity?||2,000 years ago Christianity quickly
spread to include Europe, North Africa, and the middle East. This happened
under very adverse circumstances. What had happened was that truth had
made a startling appearance on earth. The effects of truth on people lives
was most remarkable. Lazy and drunken men became loving husbands and
caring fathers. Bitter and shrewish women became loving wives and tender
mothers. Lives were transformed as people were changed by their connection
to truth. The power of Jesus was undeniable. People wanted this change for
themselves and their families even if it meant the confiscation of their
property or even death.
Over the years "experts" took over and what was still called Christianity became a managed system of religion. Even within this system, the truth could be found and lives transformed. However, as people began to walk further and further from truth, their lives were less and less transformed. Today the Biblical idea that churches should help their members grow into the full image of Christ is such an alien a concept that it is seldom even heard.
Our purpose is to help point the way back to what Christianity first was. If any still seek truth or have become disillusioned with what churches and religion have become, we want to provide encouragement that the path is still there and the the truth can still be found.

|Why not just go to a church?||We believe that real
Christianity is lived out through relationships, us with Jesus and with
each other. Organizational systems do not do relationships. Denominations
have an interest in maintaining their control, assets, and traditions. We
are more interested in truth.
There have been various movements such as Christian agrarianism, homesteading, patriarchy, vision forum, and dominionism. We feel that organizational movements tend towards restrictive legalism and that if we don't leave room for individual action and even individual error that we quench individual growth.
We welcome anyone who would like to communicate with us and are available to answer any questions. We would like to see the growth of relational Christianity instead of organizational and institutional Christianity.
