How can churches that are planted by missionaries become indigenous? This question has troubled mission leaders for two centuries. Varied schemes have been proposed for the transfer of authority, property and finance to suitably trained nationals but it has not been easy.....

Norris Groves advocated a different approach which he claimed to find in the New Testament, suggesting that churches should be indigenous from the start. With no buildings to maintain, no salaries to pay, no organisation to oversee, he encouraged his converts to meet without foreign supervision or control

His principles were adopted in India by John Arulappan and Bakht Singh, and in China by Watchman Nee, who all became leaders of flourishing indigenous movements. Like Groves, they looked directly to the New Testament as their guide to church and mission strategy.
