Should we question our theology in light of our practice?

September 18, 2010

WHY – in a movement that is theologically persuaded of the necessity if plural eldership, the non-biblical and life threatening model of the one-man-ministry, of the importance of team and of the body being released into ministry through the input of Ephesians 4 ministries and aforementioned elders –

WHY – in a movement convinced of the power of the person of the Holy Spirit, persuaded of the essential experience of the baptism of the Holy Spirit and the ongoing being filled with Him –

WHY – in a movement desperate for the Kingdom of God to break out in power, seeing increased healings and miracles amongst our churches, trying so hard to be missional and reaching the lost –

WHY – in a movement that values church history, has learnt much from those who have gone before us, that stands in the line of the Anabaptists, Lollards, Waldensians, the Reformers and many others who have lived and died for the priesthood of all believers to be restored to the church –

WHY

would we ever, EVER let our corporate act of worship be dominated by just one person, the ‘worship leader’?

WE BELIEVE the Bible is the word of God, breathed out by Him, true, powerful, and to be submitted to in all areas of life

WE BELIEVE in the experience of the presence of God in the person of the Holy Spirit

WE BELIEVE He gives gifts as He wills, to each one, for the common good

WE BELIEVE in the importance of the body

WE BELIEVE that when we come together, everyone has something to bring – a psalm, a hymn, a word of teaching, word of knowledge, a tongue, an interpretation…

The question is – do we?
