I ran across this article on an emerging church in my hometown in Portland, Oregon. When I first was called to preach 34 years ago, Portland, Oregon was basically a Baptist/Presbyterian/Catholic/Methodist city. Since that time the area is seeing the birth of many emerging churches, especially charismatic churches that are ministering to the city’s residents – most of whom are un-churched. Imago Dei (Latin for the Image of God) is one of those churches and their pastor, Rick McKinley has a great quotation:
We stopped building the church and started being the church.
