The inspiration behind forming Kudumbakoottaimma is the strong desire to go back to the early Christians’ religious spirit and cooperating and sharing mentality, in the light of apostles’ activities2 : 42,4 : 32– 34. As members of Gods House (Ephesus2 : 19) who have received heavenly citizenship (Philippians3 : 20) the members of a parish meet in each of the neighbouring houses and pray together. Being a remedy for the sense of alienation felt the crowds, it helps the members to know and understand one another,. Like the various organs of the body the members are helped creating friendly relationships, to encourage one another and to be available for and to support those who need help. Its main goal is to build up the Church which is the mystical body of Christ, through sharing time, toil, capacities, knowledge, wealth and above all love.
