Saints, thank you for your patience and prayers as many brothers and sisters have contributed and serving in so many ways to make this Principles book a reality. Though much of its contents has been and is displayed in different sermons, books and messages that many have heard. We still felt it was important to consolidate and gather together what has been evidently the Lord’s end time burden for His Bride (the Church) for believers in North America specifically but also world-wide.
We are nearing the end of the editing process and from then will be releasing the book in free eBook formats for saints to be able to download and view on their computers and ebook readers such as Amazon Kindle versions, pdf, etc. Feel free to share the word about this on your social media and blogs of this soon coming book and use any images on the Gospel Fellowships website.
Here is a short preview from the Foreword of the volume:
From the Foreword:
The time is now. Count the cost. You will be persecuted, tested, and tried. You will be misunderstood, hated by the world, and sometimes hated even by the members of your own household. There will be tears, heartache, tribulation, suffering and pain. But, you will be living for the One who is worthy of all, and whose eternal kingdom cannot be shaken nor ever fade away. You will have the privilege of serving the King of kings and the Lord of all lords. Moreover, you will one day have the awesome indescribable experience of seeing His glorious face and hearing Him call you by name as His own. – brother Brian
Saints, we are excited to announce that we are nearing the competition and release of this volume: Principles For The Gathering Of Believers Under the Headship of Jesus Christ. The Lord has multiple brethren involved and nearly 100 brothers and sisters that had a part in the book by edit, suggestion, change etc. We also have tried to quote from multiple brethren from many denominations to truly give the book a sense of being of the body of Christ and not one group or slant of truth.
Currently there is a sister editing the volume and after this is done we should be able to with small changes submit it as a free ebook to many services such as Kindle, Barnes and Noble, Google Play, etc. We also are going to release the book on a print on demand service with Amazon at 100% cost value so you get the book literally at the cost it takes for amazon to print and ship it to you. We are blessed to be able to offer the book freely this way to saints world-wide.
Please continue to pray for the volume and its release. May the Lord use it not as something to be lifted up but rather something to encourage people further on the road to gathering as the body of Christ in these end-times.
Free eBook – Principles For The Gathering Of Believers under the Headship of Jesus Christ
Dear Saints of God, we are excited to be coming much closer to the release of this free eBook for the body of Christ. We believe this book to be significant for the times we are living in and very important for believer in the West. It is a shared burden of many brothers in the West in the body of Christ to be more prepared for coming persecution and to get back to simple obedience to the Lord as the Church.
With thousands of new mega churches and church ideas and philosophies that mix the Words of God with the world’s ways and wisdom. We need rather a fresh faith and obedience to the Book of Acts and simple Spirit-led and Spirit-filled gatherings of believers who are the Church.
We are calling believers who are being set in the world’s wisdom to rather, renew their minds (Romans 12:2) and by faith in God’s Spirit and plan allow Him to teach and guide us into how He wants the Church. We also have much to learn from underground Churches around the world where God has sovereignly built His Church. So in the book we cover principles from the Underground churches in Iran, North Korea and China.
Please pray for the completion of this project as many brothers are helping edit and make final changes for publication. God willing the book could be released in April or even end of March of this year.

The Reason for the book?
This volume has been developed out of a burden to see vital gatherings of God’s people (the body of Christ) established in these end times. The time of pressure and persecution that is coming world-wide (Matthew 24:9) will be such that it will demand the unity of the true body of Christ.
Some specific goals for this book being written?
1.) To assist true Bible believing churches1 to develop House Bible studies 2for personal growth and for inviting neighbors, to make disciples;
2.) To encourage true believers to leave churches that no longer teach the whole Word of God, to then join a true Bible believing church or to establish a House church to make disciples.
3.) To provide a manual of Biblical principles for House churches and Home Bible Study meetings.
4.) To unify believers who have been separated by denominational issues, within a House church or House Bible study, under the headship of Christ.
A New Movement of the body of Christ?
God is desiring to bring great glory to His Son and doing this through the body of Christ (gatherings of true believers) on the earth. The Scriptures clearly declare that the “Gospel of the kingdom will be preached in all the world as a witness to all the nations.” (Matthew 24:14). This preaching and spreading of the gospel will be done not by the ingenuity of men but by the working of the Spirit of God. God is raising many servant leaders to lead His Church in these end times. Yet they will not be men of renown or of prestige. God is raising up many obscure godly servants who share the spirit of the True Shepherd to call for the gathering of His body as the end of the age approaches.
When will the book be released and in what formats?
The volume will be released God willing in a few months. Currently we are finishing the actual writing of the book and God willing some editors are going to help edit the volume for content, theology and grammar. The book will be available in as many formats as possible to facilitate it being read. We are going to offer it freely as an online book, free pdf downloads, free mobi and other ebook formats. We will list the book also as cheaply as possible in other online ebook stores. The book will be available also for print on demand soft cover. And depending if any brothers are able to facilitate a print run we will have the book in hard cover format also. You can preview the Table of Contents of the book here: Principles For The Gathering Of Believers
How much will the book cost and profit?
The editors Brother Greg and Brother Edgar will make ZERO off any book sales. We do not want to make any profit from the sales of this book but simply want the book to get into as many hands as the Lord would allow and desire. Thus we are offering it in every format possible. When the book is offered in print format either hardcover or paperback it will be offered exactly as COST price that it took to produce the volume nothing more.
How to know when the book will exactly be released?
The best way to be alerted towards the book release is to stay tuned to this blog. Also to follow us on facebook and twitter. We will be updating those social media sites with the news when the book is available.
