    • 1408 Words
    • 6 Pages

    The early Christian church surfaced as a mission church bridging various languages, cultures, and religious environments. The church provided an essential biblical model of multiplication and reproduction. The biblical model of the church instituted by God expressed that a healthy church must encompass the practices of both evangelism and discipleship. Evangelism is the real business of life and that is getting souls saved , while discipleship helps to create other disciples. The cycle continues as people receive salvation, grow spiritually, mature, and go and make disciples. This consistent process builds a healthy body which is modeled after the body of Christ. Dave Earley and Rod Dempsey shares, “a healthy church is a representation of…

    The identity of the Christian church has become confused; the church is not the building people gather at on Sundays or holidays and it is not the denomination they belong to. Rather, the church transcends time, it is the totality of every believer ever. This misconception has lead to the rapid failure of the church today. Churches are becoming impersonal institutions that focus on their programs and attendance more than the people they are herding in. There is a serious lack of transformation…

    I chose to visit a Christian church because I was raised in an atheist household with no prior knowledge of any religious faiths. My lack of knowledge on religion was what actually inspired me to take this class and after a few lessons I realized that in order to understand other religions, I should have a firm understanding of Christianity. The Christian church where I did my site visit was actually a Non-Denominational church which I believe was perfect for my first experience in religion…

The picture of this structure in the imagination seems like an ordinary house made of logs and a thatch roof; it…

    The Dangerous or Revolutionary Potential of Religion When I was a child, I was forced to go to church. I use the word “force” because, I didn’t understand the purpose of church.

Like school, I tried to find joy in it where I could: I made friends; I sang; I entertained myself; and I slept, when I was young enough to get away…
