Future 5: Living the Mission of Jesus
Gerry Boudains is our 5th Speaker of the Series
One thing I am 100% sure of is that the church of Christ will not be destroyed no matter how badly we behave. I know that, because when Jesus told Peter he would build his church he also promised that the gates of Hades, that is hell and evil would not overcome it.
Thanks be to God. So what does the future of the church look like? And perhaps this is where I've been billed me as someone who sees the church in a social context. I am passionate about the church in the community.
That was how they early church grew and Christianity became a worldwide faith, because Christians walked the walk and talked the talk.
That's the future of Christ's church - going back to our gospel roots. Authentic discipleship and a real and living faith are the future of the church in Jersey.
Forget denominations, they simply weaken the witness. Hold onto the fact that Christ has the victory and his church will prevail wherever his message of love and reconciliation is proclaimed
