God’s Grace or Mere Methods

Willimon, in The Intrusive Word: Preaching to the Unbaptized writes: The challenge of being an evangelistic preacher is the precarious willingness to allow God to use us to assemble the church, which is often a church we would not have assembled if assembling a church were only a matter of methods of church growth rather than a matter of God’s grace. Church as Merely Agency Today is an era of church growth methods. We go to the champions of church growth to attempt to learn a “one size fits all” method of growing a church. We get energized. We hear

Quote: Inspiration of Scripture as it relates to Christian ministers

Here is a very interesting quote by Dr. Robert Reymond on the topic of the Inspiration of Scripture as it relates to Christian ministers: The candidate for Christian ministry who does not believe that the Bible is God’s inspired Word should not enter the ministry. He does not belong there.

I am a Baptist by affiliation and conviction. One of the cardinal tenets of Baptist life is Regenerate Church Membership. We seek to do all that is possible to guide people on the path of eternal life. The crulest hoax perpetrated upon mankind is to deceive them about the real condition of their eternal soul. The NAMB (North American Mission Board – SBC) did a study of persons who had been baptized in SBC life. They sought to determine where they were in their spiritual walk one year after their baptism. Less than 10% were still affiliated with the church

Intro to IgniteUS Ministries

IgniteUs ministry is Christ-centered, evangelical, Protestant, trans-denominational and kingdom-focused. Their processes are principle-driven and Biblically based. They have strong convictions in the Great Commandment and the Great Commission, believing that churches should produce disciples, not warehouse saints. I affirm their belief that believe that disciple-making takes precedent over personal and social agendas. Leading churches to actually “make disciples” is not a “one size fits all,” endever but a Biblical process – a leadership development journey which varies from pastor to pastor and congregation to congregation. . This Journey is not for the impatient or the faint of heart.Check out how
