Called Out 4: The Mission

“What is the mission of the Church? What is her ultimate purpose?”

If your experience is anything like mine, then you might assume that the mission of the church is to save souls from hell. You may think that making converts is her main work. In today’s podcast and post we look closer at the mission of the Church and compare what it has become to what it was when it started.

Join me now as we face the sobering judgment upon our beloved institution and see beyond conversion to religion and gain a glimpse of completion through faith.

Called Out 2: How it Began and Begins for us

“Have you ever compared the modern church to the one depicted in the Bible?

The difference is shocking. In today’s podcast and post we explore how over the centuries, the church has morphed from a community gathering into a global institutional power, complete with cradle to the grave programs, full-time staff members, and a political force of counter-cultural propaganda. Was that the goal of its Founder?

Join me now as we see beyond our jumbotrons, worship bands and fog machines, and learn how the Church started back then and how to discern the “real” thing amidst our culturally contrived institutions.
