AbstractThis thesis studied what Christ-like hospitality is and observed whether hospitality has an impact on building authentic relationships with people outside our church. Six individuals and the researcher used the methodology of action research to collect and analyze the data. The data were gathered through written journal logs and group interviews. This study showed that hospitality is an inclusive practice. Secondly, there are four reasons why we should practice hospitality: hospitality creates a space for evangelism, is worship, is a spiritual dynamic, and is a practice that needs to be recovered. Finally, hospitality is challenging and needs to have boundaries.
