American Evangelicalism is ablaze.
Doctrinal identity unites black and white evangelicals, but divisions along ethnic and cultural lines have long tarnished the movement's witness. With desegregation on the horizon, Martin Luther King Jr. said, "I've come to believe that we are integrating into a burning house." As with the country, if we hope to fully integrate the American evangelical church, we must do so as firefighters.
In A Burning House Video Study, Pastor Brandon Washington challenges American evangelicalism to embrace its historical commitment to orthodoxy and orthopraxy. Only then can it become a holy witness to humanity and embody shalom-- peace, justice, wholeness-- in the world. These are the inevitable fruits of espousing and preaching a comprehensive gospel message.
