Redeemer Presbyterian Church Sermons
A missional church is a church designed to reach members of a non-Christian culture. America, especially urban America, is becoming increasingly post-Christian and needs missional churches in order to engage those whose worldview is profoundly non-Christian. Yet, a missional church is much more than a church with an evangelistic program. It means creating a church where all ministry is conducted with the mindset that non-Christians will be present.
Biblical hospitality goes far deeper than merely entertaining your friends and family at your home. In the Bible, hospitality is proactively seeking to welcome the marginalized. Hospitality is providing a warm home for the lonely. Throughout the Bible, God is the exemplar of hospitality. God provided a home for the Israelites when they were slaves in Egypt. But most of all, God the Father even abandoned Jesus in order to bring us home to God.
