The Free Church Report
The Free Church Report is a unique path for the modern Church according the nature of the first century Church by explaining the duty and purposes of that institution of Christ. While Rome declined under runaway inflation, corrupt government, martial law, and endless threat of war the Christians found an alternative in the “kingdom of heaven”.
The early Christian knew rights and responsibilities were indivisible. They sought the right to be ruled by God, professing another king, one Jesus. They governed themselves, with the service of “called out” ministers who lived in the world, but not of it. Their rights were granted by God. Their government benefits did not come from men who “called themselves benefactors but exercised authority one over the other” but through a divine network of faith, hope, and charity under the perfect law of liberty as the unrighteous mammon failed.

The Elders of Liberty are the Altars of Earth
The congregation of the people is composed of what Abraham called the altars of earth, or “adamah”. Each of us are living sacrificial altars of clay, sons of Adam whose Father was God. We are both priest and king of our own freewill choice. Our offering within the family and to the community is by charity.1
A minister of the congregation is first chosen by the people as we see being done in Acts 6:3.2 Each individual family is represented by the head or elder of the family who freely chooses their own minister. In the documents and form offered in service by His Church individuals may be called the electorate.3
The electorate have been referred to individually as “elders” of families or collectively as the laity, from the Greek laos, meaning people. In terms of the world they may appear to be a constituency,4 but they are simply the people who choose from moment to moment, and day to day, to support the leadership of those who continue to be perceived by the people as the ministers of God and the servants of His people.
Those who are freely chosen as by an electorate of elders in a free association are the living “stone” altars of our sacred sacrifice to God for the people. They are the public minister of the congregation.
These chosen ministers are the unhewn stones of God’s sacred altars. Unhewn is a metaphor for being unregulated. In their ministration of this system of faith, hope, and charity the good will of the people for the people is administered by the choice of the people. The people maintain their right to decide to whom and how much they shall contribute. What ever they choose to give is paid in full.5 There is no coercion in the kingdom of God but their own God given conscience. The ministers have power over how those contributions shall be managed because once given they are burned up to the people.
The ministers of the Church have an unregulated authority on how they use that offering, but if they are not a fruitful government that provides for the people with love and mercy and strengthens the poor, then the offerings will go to other ministers. This system of thanksgiving will be like Christ or perish. Together, the ministers and the people form the temple of God, made of living earth and stones, formed in their hearts by God. This is the kingdom of His righteousness.
