From the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven has suffered violence, and the violent take it by force. Matthew 11:12 ESV. As missional pastors and church planters we cannot let anything hinder the distinctives and power of the gospel in every area of our lives, as we carry out the task of renewing this world in Christ.
