Christians: Unruly Barbarian Tribe?

‘When the Church becomes an institution people are nothing more than volunteers to be recruited. When the Church is a movement, our stewardship becomes the unleashing of our God given gifts, talents & passions. My goal is not to cast a vision that everyone buys into, but to create a visional community where everyone who enters in begins to have wild and God-sized dreams and visions. There is a price to pay of course, when you choose this particular path; you end up with an unruly barbarian tribe. They keep getting called by God to do things you didn’t expect or really didn’t want them to do.’

‘I want God to unleash the untamed faith within. When His Spirit is poured into our lives, we are inspired to an extraordinary level of living. Barbarians never exist simply to survive. Barbarians never just get through the day. Barbarians wake to live and live life fully awake. To be filled with the Spirit of God is to be filled with dreams and visions that are too compelling to ignore. Live or die, succeed or fail, barbarians must pursue and attempt such dreams and visions. The barbarian spirit dreams great dreams and finds the courage to live them.’

- Erwin McManus The Barbarian Way

We shall win.

"The decree has gone forth that the kingdoms of this world shall become the kingdoms of our Lord and of His Christ and that He shall reign whose right it is from the River to the ends of the earth. We shall win. It is only a question of time. I believe that this Movement shall inaugurate the final conquest of our Lord Jesus Christ."
- General Catherine Booth
