Here are a few questions we hear a lot and even some we don't, but thought you might be interested anyway. Click a question to read more.

+ Empty Church is a weird name, where did that come from?

Some say that the origin is buried deep in an old Pete Townsend song. But it probably came from finally realizing that being full of crap, like anger, lust, and doughnuts, made us drift farther away from God and help our friends less. It was only by living empty of all that junk that we could encounter the fullness of God and truly love our neighbors as ourselves.

+ How is Empty Church different from every other church?

An "Empty Church" is a group of believers that have found that ridding themselves of the crap that keeps them separated from God is the best possible way to live. The burden of sin has become just that, a burden. They have traded the hollowness of being filled with pride, envy, anger, lust, and more for a life that is surrendered to the Holy Spirit by following the example of Jesus in Philippians 2:6-7.

Empty.church (the website) is a digital resource used to spread the gospel and facilitate live meetings where people can live out their calling to be the church in the broken society where they have been called to dwell.

Empty Church (the organization) reaches out to the digitally inclined with timely content that, through the power of the Holy Spirit, may engage people at critical junctions in their spiritual search. As an organization we also try to raise awareness of what our co-laborers are doing to impact their world.

+ Are you a cult?

No. Josh is a licensed Minister with the Assemblies of God and we humbly choose to follow their lead. They provide accountability and encouragement. We feel this accountability is important so that we don't turn into a cult.

+ Where do you meet?

Plans to hold live meetings are in the works. Right now we are building our digital front porch so we can get to know each other. To get updates please sign up for Empty Church emails.

+ Your blog encourages conversation; am I really allowed to say whatever I want?

Yes, as long as you follow our handy dandy rules for discussion.

+ Which came first, the chicken or the egg?

The chicken of course. The better question is, why did it cross the road?
