Since the time of The Reformation under Luther, Calvin and others, the church has been in a constant state of reform. In fact, The Reformation did not go back far enough in its search to reform and renew, and the results of this can be seen in the fragmentation of the church in the world today. Unfortunately, much of what was reformed still included many traditions of men and religious dogmas. For example, though this book will not address the topic of eschatology, both eschatology, the study of the end times, and ecclesiology, the dynamics and structure of church life, remained relatively unchanged from the time of Luther until today. But the times, they are a changing. To clearly ascertain what the Lord intends for his church, we must go back to the beginning...even before the time of Christ, to determine God's original intentions. The church, in the Old Testament and New, were dynamic, powerful, purposeful, ever changing and supernatural. As the church of the 21st Century moves forward, it must, if it is to fulfill its eternal destiny, look back and rediscover the principles and patterns of the supernatural architecture found in scripture. In this second edition of Dr. DeKoven' s work, the life of the church is presented from a church growth perspective, and within the paradigm of the New Apostolic Reformation. Most importantly, the patterns of Jesus, which are truly timeless, and were expanded on by his apostles, especially Paul the apostle, as seen in three pattern churches, Jerusalem, Antioch and Ephesus, reveal the Supernatural Architecture of God for his glory and the blessing of the nations.
