Why God-Centered?

One of our desires as a church is to be God-Centered. This quote from David Wells’ The Courage to Be Protestant helpfully summarizes why we think this is a good and necessary desire.

 What is of first importance to the church is not that it learn to mimic the culture but that it learn to think God’s thoughts after him. The people of God are here on earth to learn how to recenter him, as it were, to see him in the place that he actually occupies, to worship him accordingly, and to live before him day after day. To live before him, not as we want to think about him because we are postmoderns, but before him as he really is. This is the way – indeed, the only way – the church can be faithful to him in its own time and context (98).
