Latest blog from my pastor, Chuck Tate. This is so good I had to reblog it!
The Church (a group of people and a place of worship) is God’s idea. Jesus said He’s the Head of it, He’s the One building it, and the gates of Hell will not prevail against it. His mission for the Church is to go public by preaching the Gospel (which is good news, not bad news) and making disciples. This means our churches should be filled with churched and unchurched. We strive to make outsiders insiders so they can go get outsides to make them insiders. After all, Jesus came for outsiders, right? He said, “I came for those who know they are sinners, not for those who think they are righteous.”
This should challenge us to do whatever it takes (minus compromising the Word of God) to create an atmosphere to make unchurched comfortable enough to hear the Good News and then give them an opportunity to respond to it (i.e. help them with their next steps).
