Three high-profile American church leaders are urging Christians to work towards greater unity and humility within the Body of Christ.
Author and pastor Francis Chan, Gospel for Asia founder Dr K.P. Yohannan, and broadcaster Hank Hanegraaff have made the comments in a roundtable video discussion.
Assist News Service reports, the trio called for Christians everywhere to place less emphasis on “charismatic personalities” and “popularity contests” and to focus more on being united and humble.
Pastor Chan described the church in America as “splintered” and said 21st-century evangelism often focuses on personalities and theological squabbles.
Dr Yohannan challenged Christians to follow the example of the early church in the Book of Acts, while Mr Hanegraaf agreed that today’s Christians have much to learn from the early church’s teachings and practices.
