Grapevine Ecclesia was called to be a 1st Century type fellowship or Ecclesia.  God showed us (my wife and I) a way of looking at church that was different from what I was used to.  After reading through Acts and Paul's Letters to the various churches I began to understand what God was revealing to us.

In the process of starting Grapevine Ecclesia and answering my call to be a Pastor, we were blessed to discover; through God, UNTCI.   We discovered that UNTCI had a very similar call by God.

Excerpt from The Disciple-Making Minister Chapter 4 Home Churches
"Some people reject house churches as being true churches, simply because they lack an actual church building. Had those folks lived at any time during the first three hundredy ears of the church, they would have rejected every single church in the world as being a real church. The fact is that Jesus declared, “For where two or three have gathered together in My name, there I am in their midst” (Matt. 18:20). Jesus said nothing about where believers must gather. And even if there are only two believers, He promised to be present if they gather in His name. What Christ’s disciples often do in restaurants, sharing a meal and exchanging truth, teaching and admonishing one another, is actually closer to the New Testament model of church gatherings than what often happens in many church buildings on Sunday mornings."  Read More
