The Gospel and Achievers

When the strength of the evangelical movement is found in the suburbs and among the people who are socially upwardly mobile, there is a tendency to think that the gospel is primarily for the achievers in society….While the upwardly mobile must not be neglected…the church must not ignore those who are at the bottom of the pile.  It is good news just as much for the marginalized who aren’t going anywhere because they have nowhere to go.” (ChurchNext by Eddie Gibbs pp. 59-60)
