The Gospel can change anyone. We exist to help people looking for answers to make sense of God.
The role the city plays in the Bible is powerful and changing. Cities are set up as places for safety, law, economic development, cultural creation. Every city bears God’s image because his image bearers created it, and every city represents man’s desire to glorify himself. Cities are radiating places of influence in culture, and by reaching cities, you can reach cultures and eventually the world.
When the gap between public truth and gospel truth is growing, the role of the church is take on the responsibility to build a bridge from biblical truth across the gap to the culture in a way that brings the real gospel truth to bear on the questions, hopes, desires that unbelieving people are actually asking and feeling.
President John Stumbo shares his passion and perspective on what sacrificing ourselves for the mission around the world means for us.
The earliest Christians lived in a culture that was openly hostile to Christianity and surprisingly it spread.
It spread deeply into people’s lives, making a serious difference beyond individual hearts and minds and into entire cities.
At its brightest, the Gospel creates a rising tide that lifts up for everyone in its wake.
The Holy Spirit operating in the life of an authentic Christian gives us the extraordinary power to offer ourselves in service. There are many ways we can offer ourselves, but one motivation for the many ways: love.
How can we know that we really have come into an authentic relationship with God through Jesus Christ? The Holy Spirit will make His life changing love visible to us and others through the one fruit of the Holy Spirit, growing in maturity and ripeness.
The Holy Spirit is sent into the heart, the deepest part of the Christian, to lead them into being at home in the home of the Father, Son, and Spirit. The Holy Spirit is working in prayer to synchronize our internal dialogue so that we see the Father as ours, we grow up through pain, and we grow into the spirit of adoption.
The Holy Spirit is the person who transforms us mentally; renews us to sanity. Reshaping our mental processing based on the gospel changes them to lead to life and away from death. Union with Christ means that everything that happened to Jesus happened to us. Thinking this all the way through transforms us.
