Vibrant churches with spiritual energy are filled with people who understand the true nature of our creation and calling – to be like God. To be like God who is love, who shows grace and compassion, who is not violent, who gives everything away so that all may live abundantly. (See Genesis 1 and Ephesians 4)
These churches are learning to live with freedom and hospitality, where all are welcome and included. Constraints of institutional demands and of inherited doctrines and traditions are re-examined with humility and love. These are changing churches.
