A Confessing Church
The Church is called to confess Christ. There are many different gifts that flow from our oneness in Christ. This true diversity enables us together to constitute the Body of Christ. But there are many human characteristics that are evidence of our brokenness, fallenness and sin. Such diversity is not a gift of Christ and cannot be celebrated. Rather, it should drive us to our knees for forgiveness, cleansing and transforming grace.
