What is an Emergent or Emerging Church?

This video is part of the preparations for a class I will be teaching at Master’s Baptist College in Spring 2019 on Christian Denominations. In this video I discuss what it means to be an “Emergent” church, and how these churches compare with other categorizations of churches.  

Shall the Fundamentalists Win?

This famous sermon, preached by Harry Emerson Fosdick, is a good look at the argumentation that won the day for the modernists in the “Fundamentalist-Modernist controversy.” Even today it is relevant, as these arguments are used in mainline churches, emergent churches, and by those in Evangelical churches who want more Ecumenism.

What is a Mainline Church?

This video is part of the preparations for a class I will be teaching at Master’s Baptist College in Spring 2019 on Christian Denominations. There are several cross-denominational categorizations of churches: Mainline, Evangelical, Fundamentalist, etc. This video describes what Mainline churches are like today.
