Muslims and the Church

Three Perspectives

Even in the midst of perplexing practices, religious garb, and extremist terrorism, Muslims still need to hear the gospel. What should our attitude be as we tell Muslims about Jesus? In this session from Missio Nexus' On Mission webinar, Ken Katayama, President of Crossover-USA, challenges the typical North American Christian perspective of Muslims. He offers three points of view for the church to consider as we evangelize Muslims in North America. 

 Ken listed three perspectives on engaging Muslims:
  1. Think "people groups" instead of "geographic borders."
  2. Think about kingdom expansion instead of church growth.
  3. Think "Spiritual stewardship" instead of "political correctness."

Evaluate your perspective on Muslims, the church, and evangelism. Consider adopting some of Ken's points in your ministry this week. Do not shy away from opportunities to share the gospel with Muslims, or anyone who doesn't know Jesus. Pray for the unbelievers in your life—that they would come to believe in Christ.
