Why does Christianity continue to grow? What are the values that drive its culture-spanning history? How does it transform cultures and people into better versions of themselves, rather than forcing the one culture on everyone? The values of inclusion and diversity, which lie at the heart of Christianity, account for all these questions. But then why does the church struggle so much with the modern Western values of inclusion and diversity? Where did they come from? How are they different? Join us as we grapple with these questions in the hope that we can understand how, as modern, Western Christians, we can embrace the values of Christianity while reaching out to a broken world.

In The Beginning (Genesis 1-12)
Joel Kolb • Spring City Fellowship • Sermon • • 13 views • 52:32
Maybe divisions can serve a purpose? Rather than have everyone agree on a side - and it be the wrong side - like before the flood; maybe it is good that people have different views and perspectives? Maybe if we don’t call it division - what if we call it diversity? How can we leverage diversity to recognize what is good and spread it throughout the earth?
