10 reasons why it might be time for you to stop going to church

By Jaemin Frazer

To see someone fully become the person they were created to be has to be one of the most beautiful and compelling things in the world. Yet it rarely happens.

One question which immediately comes to mind is, “Why do we spend so much of our time and effort “building church” when that is HIS job? And, “Why do we spend so little time preaching kingdom?” Continue reading The Kingdom and the Church
