Kenny Benge preached a sermon entitled “The Missional Church” for the Second Sunday after Epiphany on January 20, 2013. The Scriptures teach that in Jesus Christ, God is redemptively restoring his fallen creation in every part, until at last all things are made new. This is the missio Dei, the redemptive mission of God to the world. God intends to accomplish this mission by the power of the Holy Spirit through the Christian church. The church, that one, holy, catholic, and apostolic community—that is both global in its reach and local in its expression—is the intended instrument for the mission of God. Hospitality is a central missional practice of the church—having been welcomed by God into His presence, we are to welcome others.
