So, a Muslim and an atheist walk into a church. “Who’s taking the service today?” asks the Muslim. “I think it’s my turn,” says the atheist. “You did it last week.” If that happened in a church, we’d probably be outraged – not because we have anything against either Muslims or atheists, but because it…

Much has been written recently about the controlling leadership clamp-down at Mars Hill Church in Seattle, revolving around a famous Non-Compete contract, and the numerous resulting resignations and firings.

His comments came as he became the first prime minister since Margaret Thatcher to attend Britain’s national parliamentary “prayer breakfast”. It follows a debate over Mr Cameron’s remarks earlier this year that Britain is still a “Christian country” and that followers…

As the Assemblies of God (AG) emerges from its first 100 years, it’s evident the movement is closer than ever to the founders’ vision of achieving “the greatest evangelism that the world has ever seen.” The AG has now experienced 24 consecutive years of growth in the U.S., according to new stats from AG National…

Faster than you can say separation of church and state, the New York Civil Liberties Union is taking constitutional affront at Mayor de Blasio’s plan to welcome religious organizations into the Universal Church of pre-kindergarten education.
