  • The gospel is God’s power generator in this world to create a new community. @rayortlund
  • Only God can bring us back into God’s good graces through the work of Christ on the cross. @rayortlund
  • Only God can impart new life to spiritually dead people through the agency of the Holy Spirit. @rayortlund

  • We cannot organize revival, but we can set our sails to catch the wind from heaven when God chooses to move. @plattdavid

  • God is glorified through the expansion of His kingdom. @drtonyevans
  • God has empowered us to be His kingdom representatives in history. @drtonyevans
  • The kingdom agenda is the comprehensive rule of God over every area of life. @drtonyevans

  • 3 ways to engage culture: isolation, accommodation, intersection. @da_horton
  • If we isolate ourselves from culture, we are dealing with our sin in a very surface way. @da_horton
  • We cannot disciple sinners to be competent followers of Christ; we need the gospel to transform their hearts. @da_horton
  • Asking people ‘How can I pray for you?’ is a very simple way to be missional in day-to-day life. @da_horton
  • Scripture must shape our worldview, not culture. @da_horton

  • Worship doesn’t start with singing. Singing starts with seeing. Until our eyes are opened to see the beauty of the gospel, there will be no song in the church. @louiegiglio
  • I don’t serve God because I should or ought but because I may serve God. It is a privilege. @louiegiglio
  • I couldn’t worship because I was dead. But now I am alive. I have God’s breath, and that allows me to worship. @louiegiglio
