If you feel a bit dumb, when it comes to starting a new church, do not worry because the Holy Spirit is a bit dumb too. A dumb person cannot speak. The Holy Spirit can only speak using the voice of another person or by putting thoughts into a person's mind. However, he is really smart at starting churches. If you are dumb enough to stop talking and listen to the Holy Spirit, you are just the person to start a new church.Getting out of the established church is the hard bit, starting a new one is much easier. Just get together with a few other Christians that you trust and listen to what Holy Spirit is saying. Act dumb (listen) until you hear what he is saying, then do it.

The answers to these questions do not matter. Just do what will work for the people involved.

The Holy Spirit can only build a strong body, if every person gets involved. A body with some limbs not functioning is a cripple. The main challenge in starting a church is to create an environment where every person can participate. Here are some hints.
