It protects the rights, and furthers the interests of the individuals and the groups of individuals which belong to it. New counter terrorism advice is being urgently issued to vicars and churches across the UK this week over fears an attack on British religious institutions is now likely. The site is led by Carl Christiansen, an experienced church planter that is committed to spreading God’s word and uniting communities.

WHEREAS American society historically has recognized the sanctity of marriage between man and woman as central to the stability of our nation and its moral posture; and WHEREAS this rational moral view is now threatened by current trends that seek to distort this view toward acceptance of unions that stand directly opposed to Scriptural directives; and WHEREAS many state and national leaders presently are seeking to reaffirm through legislative decrees and public statements our historic stand on the sanctity of marriage between man and woman; and WHEREAS the Church of God from its beginning has understood the Biblical model of marriage to be a sacred union between man and woman; and WHEREAS the Church of God has continued to affirm this basic belief through a practical commitment regarding moral purity which condemns homosexuality as a fleshly behavior and sinful practice; and WHEREAS the Church of God has further affirmed the sanctity of marriage between man and woman through a practical commitment addressing family responsibility by declaring, “Marriage is ordained of God and is a spiritual union in which man and woman are joined by God to live together as one”; and WHEREAS it is imperative that the Church of God now enter the arena of public debate concerning this ever-increasing threat to the sanctity of marriage between man and woman; BE IT THEREFORE RESOLVED that we, the 66th General Assembly of the Church of God, do reaffirm our commitment to the Word of God and its ever-present defense of marriage as a holy and sacred union between one man and one woman; and BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that we do hereby state our opposition to the rising trend toward legitimizing homosexual unions; and BE IT FINALLY RESOLVED that we encourage our members to help preserve marriage as a sacred union between man and woman by living lives that model commitment to the Word of God, exemplify devotion to moral purity, and celebrate family responsibility (66th A., 1996, pp. 64, 65).

No at-large member who has served more than one-half of a full term shall be nominated to serve again until at least two years have elapsed. Many Protestant pastors point to a massive body of church-marketing data compiled by pollsters such as California-based church consultant George Barna. "A century ago, the church that most Americans attended was virtually arranged for them at birth. S., including National Council of Churches General Secretary Bob Edgar, today delivered a letter to President Bush asking for a full understanding of �the crisis in the Holy Land confronting Christian Palestinians, Christian institutions, and those who wish to visit the birthplace of Christianity.� The letter addressed the church leaders� concerns specifically regarding the effects of the separation barrier being constructed by Israel, taxation issues that may force some church institutions to close due to the removal of their longstanding tax-exempt status, and �the denial and delay of visas, by Israel, for clergy and church personnel result[ing] in understaffed seminaries, churches, hospitals, education and other institutions.� Speaking as one of the diverse group of signers, the Most Rev.

Prophet Harris had his four wives accompany him in his evangelistic trips. 151 Isaiah Shembe ~of South ~frica had four wives, but divorced all of them before he resumed his prophetic ministry.

This statement has been proved by denominations such as the Assemblies and Southern Baptists which have focused on the strategic planting of new churches. Traditional Adventist evangelistic efforts consisted of street missions and the distribution of tracts such as The Present Truth, which was published by James White as early as 1849. Here is where we suggest the Church Planter Candidate Assessment (CPCA) developed specifically for the early stages of church planter assessment by LifeWay Research.

The fragmentation of Christian denominations has slowed, with a renewed interest in cooperation and ecumenism among many of those denominations. Our study encountered over a dozen such new nondenominational "networks" out of the hundreds of similar national groups in operation. Besides prayer and the other nine suggestions above, this is perhaps the most positive, ministry-impacting strategy one can use to slowly transform and dysfunctional congregation.

I sat in amazement and wondered what I had gotten myself into, so to speak. Yet, we who are older and more comfortable with the established church should not dismiss out of hand the efforts of the emergent folk. With a slight change in the metaphor, the same Apostle in another passage ( 1 Corinthians 3:11 ) compares Christ to the foundation, and himself and other Apostolic labourers to the builders who raise the temple upon it. It matters little to change agents whether the diverse group is meeting to talk about financial matters, world hunger, curing the sick, the Bible, or whether they are going to a restaurant, or enjoying fun summer BBQ’s, or playing miniature golf.

Hence human authority is needed to regulate the excesses of the individual persons and to direct people’s energies towards the attainment of the common good. No one dare say a word, for if one does, the Church will pursue that person and do him up! Steele reports and propagandizes for the Federal Council of Churches of Christ in America, etc.
