“Impacting Our World”

Decoration image for quotation

If we're going to impact our world in the name of Jesus, it will be because people like you and me took action in the power of the Spirit. Ever since the mission and ministry of Jesus, God has never stopped calling for a movement of ‘Little Jesuses’ to follow him into the world and unleash the remarkable redemptive genius that lies in the very message we carry.

Given the situation of the Church in the West, much will now depend on whether we are willing to break out of a stifling herd instinct and find God again in the context of the advancing kingdom of God.
