Keller’s “Center Church” Wisdom

tim-keller1

“Though we may have an area or ministry that we tend to focus on, the gospel is what brings unity to all we do.  Every form of ministry is empowered by the gospel, based on the gospel, and is the result of the gospel… 

When the preaching of the gospel is either confused or separated from the other endeavors of the church, preaching becomes mere exhortation (to get with the church’s program or a biblical standard of ethics) or informational instruction (to inculcate the church’s values and beliefs).  When the proper connection between the gospel and any aspect of ministry is severed, both are shortchanged”

-Timothy Keller “Center Church” pg. 36, 37
