I was in a relating NCMI church for 4 years. I have noticed that although they say they are not a denomination they actually are. One of my biggest concerns is what is preached or taught. I had done countless trips into many different nations with our church and other ncmi 'team guys' ( just another title that gives these men illegitimate authority and places them on pedestals). I realized that every time we went all that would be taught is the model, the ncmi model as the right way, as the biblical way. We were always trying to recruit churches and convincing them that if they were not relating to us they were either in a denomination that would control or squash them or that they were 'orphan' churches, and that they were in need of walking in the correct way, which we were. I began to realize that we were not walking in line with what the apostles in the bible were doing. We were not preaching Christ but ncmi!! This is a major problem. I eventually had to say that I was not prepared to take time and spend money to go and preach a model and that I would not go on any more trips again if this was what we were going to do. Paul said that " I claimed to know nothing while I was with you except Christ and Him crucified". I then co- lead a trip with another guy who is on the team and I told him that we were not going to preach model but only the gospel. Well we did just that, and guess what? The power of God broke in and people got healed, delivered from demons and saved. The church that we had gone in to visit was preaching from Dudley's manual. The leader would read a chapter and then preach on it. We told him to never do that again but to preach from the bible and to preach the kingdom and christ. We preached the gospel and modeled out apostolic relationship without speaking about it.
