The Church in Exile: Living Faithfully as Exiles in a Foreign Land

The church is to be in the world like a sailboat in the ocean... but when the ocean begins to get into the ship, the boat is in big trouble.

John 17:15
The Church is NOT a Building...
How Do we share our faith in a culture that often despises our values and committiment?

Option #1 – Isolation
Option #2 – Assimilation
Option #3 – Infiltration without Contamination
What are we to do? Jeremiah 29:4-7
  1. Settle Down
  2. Build Strong Families
  3. Get involved in city life.
  4. Pray
  5. Remember God's promises
Truths we need to know...
There is no quick fix.
