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

7 Pillars that Remain when the Final Blows Come...

1. People, NOT just Buildings
2. Community, NOT just Crowds
3. Training, NOT just Telling
4. Prayer, NOT just Programs
5. Hard Truths, NOT just Positive Suggestions
Hebrews 10:32-36 – Upon Receiving the Gospel...
6. Looking Without, NOT just Within
  • The church that survives attempts to silence its critics by authenticity and commitment to others.
  • A church that does NOT welcome the diversity of its neighborhood will soon wither and die.
7. Christ, NOT just the Preacher/Shepherd
  • The church that survives sees Jesus Christ as the head of the church. Matt. 28:18
  • "More failure comes from an excess of caution than from bold experimentation with new ideas."
  • Acts 12:24
Revelation 2:10, "Be faithful unto death and I will give you the crown of life."
