Perhaps, the biggest tension we face is understanding the balance of the gospel as BOTH social justice and justification by faith.
As we attract new members and as our existing members gain exposure to other ministries, there is always a temptation to adjust Word Tabernacle into whatever the culturally popular size may be.
We must and will resist this tendency. Church cannot simply be about a good feeling on Sunday. Evidence of “good church” is the motivation it brings to draw me closer to God and to be more compassionate to people.
It is our understanding that the only way to transform places is to transform people; and when individuals meet Christ they bring that identity into the institutions they frequent.
