What is the Church? 10 Things the Bible Says About the Church

Over the past several years of seminary work I have had the privilege of studying the church. There are a lot of different answers to that question (just look how many different churches there are in this country). Yesterday was our first open-air outdoor worship service at our Cornerstone Lee-Scott site. Not because we all…

A Look at the Visioning and Planning Process of the Church Body

It may not look like it at first glance, but this is part of the hard work that goes into following Christ wholeheartedly, what we call, Leading People to Know and Serve Jesus. I have learned an amazing amount about how the church body functions since I went on staff in late 2008. One of…

Mission Theology and Being a Multisite Church in Auburn

I love being part of a local church body that takes the GO in God's word literally, and seriously. Last week I spent as much time as I could studying about mission theology and how it relates to the nature of God for an international missions paper. Even though my study was under the context…

This is a continuation of, The Church Body and the Internet, Part 1, on my blog discussion on the importance of the Church as a whole and how it uses the Internet. What is amazing is how fast things change. The text below was for the most part written around the same time that part…

The Church Body and the Internet, Part 1

The question about interactions between the Church and the Internet came up recently so I wanted to touch on a few basics of this topic. I am going to post several parts to this topic over the next month or two, so I consider this to be an introduction to the topic itself, not a…

Does a Church Really Need a Website?

I have been working with church websites since I first became a believer around 1995 and offered to do website work for a large church in Birmingham. Of course, this was long before churches decided that having a web presence was just as important for them as it was for the local civic center, and…
