Pundits are writing the obituary of historic, orthodox Christianity, but pastor and author J. D. Greear (Gospel, Stop Asking Jesus into Your Heart) believes the postmortems are premature. Jesus promised to build his church. He said that the gates of hell would not prevail against it. The church is not going away.
Along with this promise, Jesus gave clear instructions for how the church would prevail. He promised to build it on the rock of the gospel.
The most pressing need for Christianity today is not a new strategy. It is not an updated message. It is a return to keeping the gospel above all.
J. D. Greear (PhD, Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary) is pastor of The Summit Church, a gospel-centered community of over 10,000 in Raleigh-Durham, North Carolina. J. D. is the author of several books, including Not God Enough: Why Your Small God Leads to Big Problems (2018), Stop Asking Jesus into Your Heart: How to Know for Sure You Are Saved (2013), and Gospel: Recovering the Power that Made Christianity Revolutionary (2011). In 2018, he was elected the 62nd president of the Southern Baptist Convention and the youngest in almost forty years. J. D. and his wife Veronica live in Raleigh, where together they are raising four amazing kids: Kharis, Alethia, Ryah Layne, and Adon.
