For many years, the denominational tag told people everything they needed to know before they walked in a church’s front door. And not just theologically. Even the style of clothing and music were similar throughout each denomination.
In recent years, many of the denominational barriers have fallen as a primary determiner of church culture. Now we tend to adopt our style and culture from some of the more influential churches in our society.
In short, some churches lead and other churches follow. Not always with good results.
If you’re copying another church, you’re not being the church God called you to be. And the kingdom of God is poorer for not having your voice in it.
