Secularization of the church has surfaced as a significant battle for regency-leaders. Our dominant culture’s quest for material possession, comforts, and image has been increasingly pushing the church into “a hollowing out of evangelical conviction.” The difference in values between the general population and most professing Christians is almost indiscernible.
Essentially, today’s church is losing the battle. This is not just because we face a secular world that we find the church adapting to the secular agenda; the church has always faced other agendas. More significant has been the church taking the focus off Christ as our leader.
To counter this trend, regency-leaders must refocus themselves and their congregations back on Christ’s teaching and values. Regency-leaders must lead their congregations to an understanding of the serious damage of secularization to the ministries of the church and the message of the Gospel. Regency-leaders must lead their congregations back to being empty of self for Christ.
