Will We Be Missional? (Hebrews 11:8-16)Pastor Joe Sanders, June 8, 2014
Part of the Standalone series, preached at a Sunday Morning service
When many people think about Christianity or defining Christianity, they think primarily in terms of its personal aspects, like conversion, relationship with God, and a personal heaven. What most of us in the West have lost is the fact that, while those things are true, they are submissive to God’s work in the church/Church and to God’s mission. Understanding what it means to be missional and on mission with God has gotten to be very difficult even as it has gained much popularity over the last decade. For the church in the West to survive, we must understand that we have been planted in a culture that is increasingly ignorant of Christianity and we must learn to relate to that culture in ways that are meaningful and engaging. Our world needs a missional church, not just an evangelical one. Will we be missional? Our answer likely dictates our survival and definitely dictates our effectiveness.
