This blog post is actually a podcast! The message is taken from the Infusion SoCal 2014 conference in which I spoke with Jon Zens and some other new co-workers in southern California. What I attempted to do in this message is tell the story of the New Testament church. However, I added some things. Not to the story, but to my presentation of it. One thing I did was to preach the gospel (which is Christ!) from Paul’s letter to the Colossians chapter one. I did this throughout the telling of the story. The other thing I did was to compare our popular messages preached and written today to that original message of the first century.
I hope that you will enjoy this message. Please let me know your responses by commenting. Thanks!
