WHAT DO YOU BELIEVE AS A NETWORK?
As a network we hold to the Scriptures as God's inspired word to us, and to the doctrines expressed through them as outlined in the Apostle's Creed.
ARE YOU A HOUSE CHURCH NETWORK?
No. We are not a house church network, nor are we an attractional church network. Instead, we are network of people from a variety of church expressions focused on putting the function of the Church in the hands of everyday people, thus freeing up everyone to create whatever form of Church they need for their context.
IS TABLE NETWORK PART OF A DENOMINATION?
No. We do partner with some denominations such as the Missionary Church Inc., and with the Christian & Missionary Alliance, Southern Baptist Convention, Presbyterian Church USA, and many others. However, we are not a denomination, nor does someone need to belong to one to be part of the network.
WHAT DO YOU VALUE AS A NETWORK?
FREEDOM: The “finished” work of Jesus needs nothing else. In Him we are free to rest as we learn to wait, watch, and walk in the fruit He bears.
FAMILY: The “church” is who we are in Jesus, not somewhere we go. Believing this frees us to love and disciple others to love and disciple others.
WHAT’S THE “WIN” FOR THE TABLE NETWORK, THE THING YOU MEASURE?
People enjoying and extending the freedom and family of Jesus with others. Nothing less, nothing more
IS TABLE NETWORK A LICENSED NOT-FOR-PROFIT MINISTRY?
Yes, all donations to the network are tax-deductible, and through ministry partnerships we are able to provide partnered church families with a non-profit covering if needed.
HOW DOES TABLE NETWORK DIFFER FROM OTHER CHURCH-PLANTING NETWORKS?
We see the need for new churches, but we believe Scripture reveals church families form out of the harvest through discipleship rather than a congregation being planted to invite outsiders into. We believe this happens most often under the leadership of everyday people.
