Good diagnostic questions from Trevin Wax, "What You Celebrate as a Church Is Just as Important as What You Believe":
Pastors and church leaders, it’s important that we believe the gospel; it’s also important that we celebrate this gospel in a way that makes clear it is “of first importance.”I do pray that Christ and His Gospel is the increasingly dominant flavor of the church's culture.
What do we celebrate as a church?
Do we ever lift up our church’s expression as “what church should be” in a way that unites our congregation around a style rather than the gospel?
Do our discipleship efforts lead to missional living or look-alike converts who will have a difficult time serving in another context in the future?
