Some quotes from tonight:

February 23, 2009

Some quotes from tonight’s last meeting that discuss the relationship between the church, evangelism, and culture:

“The Church is sent into the world to continue that which [Christ] came to do, in the power of the same Spirit, reconciling people to God.”

– Lesslie Newbigen, The Gospel in a Pluralist Society

(A culture of evangelism at a church is) “an expectation that Christians will share the gospel with others, talk about doing that, pray about it, and regularly plan and work together to help each other evangelize. We want evangelism to be normal—in our own lives and in our [church]”

– Mark Dever, The Gospel and Personal Evangelism, 17

“The church is not simply an aggregation of individuals who are saved, but it is a ‘pilot plant’ of what humanity would look like under the Lordship of Christ. We are to show the world a whole new way of being human.”

– Tim Keller, Redeemer Church Planting Manual

“The church is a community of people whose lives are so different that they can’t help but transform their communities.”

– Mark Dever
