The faith we preach

My previous post stated my desire and intention to preach the faith of the church. Let me share some of what I believe that means for a Methodist preacher. This is a short post since my days have been very full the last two weeks. I will try to develop each of these points more in the coming weeks.

The faith Methodist elders are called to preach is fed by several streams.

First, it is orthodox.

Second, it is evangelical.

Third, it is Arminian.

Fourth, it is Spirit-filled.

In the coming days and weeks, I will return to these four and sketch out in more detail what each means and which elements are crucial to being a faithful preacher in the Methodist tradition. I welcome your thoughts, questions, and comments until then.
