When last we checked, the Great Commission was unchanged. We are to go and “make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that [Jesus] commanded.” But unique to our time are the particular challenges brought by a global society, technology, and the fact the visible church is in decline numerically and theologically. Meanwhile, the New Atheism has added a strident voice against Christ and skepticism, formerly a sign of a failed worldview, has risen as the only truly “humble” way to view knowledge.
Yet faithful men still plant churches and work for the renewal of established churches in order to fulfill the high calling of the proclamation of the Gospel. To help us get a glimpse into how that is being done and what it means to be Christian in the 21st century, Pastor Daryl McKillian and Minister Arthur Daniels of Victory Christian Fellowship, a new church plant, and Rev. Philip George of Calvary Presbyterian Church of Glendale join Lindsay Brooks to explore how these challenges are being met.
