Gospel Growth

Of course, the church should seek to maximize the impact of the gospel in new and innovative ways; but in no way should this missiological imperative undermine the church's celebration of the gospel and its growth therein. The growth of the church must never be allowed to take place artificially and at the expense of the gospel itself as the theological resource of the church.
