What makes Terry Virgo tick? Relational, evangelistically relevant churches

Terry Virgo has posted the first of a series of videos looking at the seventeen values that have helped to shape his ministry over the years. They are expressed as what kind of churches he has been trying to plant and establish. The goal is therefore that a Newfrontiers church will reflect each of these values.

The first value is: ‘A gospel-preaching church that is loving, righteous in its lifestyle, involved in world mission and reaching the unsaved in its community by both public and personal evangelistic activity.’

This first video expresses the personal and evangelical necessity in the modern world of having a church that is truly relational. If we don’t love and know each other how can we love and reach the world? Terry says during this video that in his early days church was “a pretty lonely place” He went on “The world personal was very popular…when I first became a Christian I found God personally…it was great to know God personally . . . but the emphasis on personal wasn’t enough for me…I don’t think its possible to really grow into maturity alone.”
