Unity, Diversity and Our Identity in Christdiversity

For about 2000 years, God’s people were separated ethnically, culturally and religiously from the nations of the world.  Then God began creating a new humanity, building them into the church.

Palmer St. Podcast: A Formula for Spiritual Renewal

Strictly speaking spiritual renewal doesn’t follow any strict formula. It’s a work of God’s grace and, as such, is entirely dependent upon Him. Still, if we are willing to recognize our need for spiritual renewal, then we can take conscious steps in that direction. God, as it happens, loves to move in the lives of people who are earnestly seeking Him.

Palmer St. Podcast: Characteristics of a Model Church

When I got to Horizon in San Diego in 1983 it seems to me like the perfect church. It’s still unclear, but it may have gone downhill from the moment I started attending. Honestly, we’re probably all aware by now that the perfect church doesn’t exist. Still the Bible does give us an idea of what we should shoot for – things we can do to make our own church better. As churches go, the one in Thessalonica was pretty good, so this chapter gives us a number of characteristics (I counted 14) that a model church ought to have.
