In an age which screams for tolerance, the Gospel is seen as intolerably rigid - Christ can be one way, but not the way. In an effort to be more 'culturally relevant', the church is in danger of compromising - substituting the Gospel for the more palatable, non-confrontational road of social reforms. Being good citizens has become a politically correct beast, devouring the core of the church.
Spirit Empowered Mission opens up Acts 1-2, homing in on the real mission and purpose Christ has given the church: reaching the lost.
