Meetings in the Home or 2x2 House Churches

The 2x2 Home Church

The 2x2s have ministers that they call WORKERS that go out in pairs, or two by two. Hence the name 2x2 fits them well. This is also one of their fundamental boasts as to why they are the only true ministry.

The 2x2s believe in meetings in home. At first they did not. William Irvine (the founder) claimed that you could only be saved if you sold everything, gave him the money and then went out preaching in pairs in a homeless fashion. But nowadays, they have that class of people called "THE FRIENDS of the WORKERS" or more commonly heard, "FRIENDS" for short.

The WORKERS set up MEETINGS IN THE HOME or Home Churches or House Churches. This is another fundamental belief of 2x2s, is the HOUSE CHURCHES or HOME CHURCHES. They believe that having a church building is inherently evil and that only false preachers have church buildings. They also incorrectly use scripture which states that God doesn't dwell in temples made with hands.

Certainly God wants to dwell in our hearts. But Christians aren't necessarily (at least I hope not) teaching that you have to have a church building for God to approve of your life. But it isn't a sin to meet in a building either. The New Testament Jews met in the temple to hear Jesus Christ preach there. And also they met in the wilderness to hear the Saviour preach also. I believe the building teachings of theirs is simply made an issue because:

  1. They didn't have enough money for a building yet
  2. It's cheaper to have home churches
  3. Home Churches are easier to control
  4. By twisting the scripture, they can make themselves look more righteous
  5. People who are disgruntled with church finances may like the "no church buildings" teachings

I don't know all the reasons the 2x2s have house churches, but I do know what I've felt and experienced being raised in the 2x2 cult, having been a worker for 1.5 years and gone to meetings until the age of 33. I do know that I love the LORD and don't care about church buildings either way. I don't need a church building to be happy. I know God dwells in my heart and loves me. I am content with the LORD.

I should point out the 2x2 hypocrisy. The 2x2s have annual meetings or CONVENTIONS at CONVENTION GROUNDS where tens of thousands are often invested into buildings that are only used about 3-8 days out of the year. Also the 2x2s will rent other people's buildings. So you can see the 2x2s break their own rules that they have made up for themselves and others. They will preach the 2x2 home church teaching only if and when it makes themselves look good and leave out their inconsistencies.

The Benefits of House Churches for Sexual Predators

The 2x2 house churches or meetings in the home or home meeting provide many opportunities for child sexual predators. And it is a cheap religious overhead expense. And it makes many unsuspecting people relax when they should be wary of the WORKERS and 2x2 ELDERS.

To open their eyes, and to turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan unto God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins, and inheritance among them which are sanctified by faith that is in me. - Jesus Christ speaking to Saul, see Act 26:18, see Salvation through Jesus Christ.
