Being a Church for all People (Bishop Perry Engle)

January 12, 2014

Texts:  Isaiah 42.1-9 & Acts 10.34-43

The church, as God’s resilient missional vehicle, is called to welcome the world God is redeeming.  The promise of God is that the messiah will usher in a new day where all the dispossessed and marginalized are welcomed into God’s kingdom (Isaiah 42.1-9).  The story of Peter and Cornelius’ conversions (Acts 10), point us toward how the church become a place of welcome.
