Unity in a Diverse Church What we mean by Diversity in the Church What we mean by Diversity in the Church DIVERSITY IS COLOR / RACE / NATION
- Diversity in the church is referred to as our brothers and sisters that have come from different countries, backgrounds, cultures, languages and ethnicities. - The first century church was very diverse. We read of letters to the Romans, Corinthians, Ephesians, Galatians, to the Hebrews, Colossians, etc. Many nations were involved in the first century.
What we mean by Diversity in the Church NOT HOMOSEXUALITY - Diversity is NOT homosexuality. The world and politicians want to force us to believe that lifestyles are part of a diversity. - 1 Cor. 6:9-10 - Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived. Neither fornicators, nor idolaters,
nor adulterers, nor homosexuals, nor sodomites, Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners will inherit the kingdom of God. What we mean by Diversity in the Church NOT FALSE DOCTRINES - The Lord God does not believe in unity in false doctrine. There is no such thing as a united church
with many doctrines. -2 John 9 - Whoever transgresses and does not abide in the doctrine of Christ does not have God. He who abides in the doctrine of Christ has both the Father and the Son. Who The Gift Of Salvation
Was Promised to Who The Gift Of Salvation Was Promised to: THE JEWS FIRST (ISRAEL) God selected these people first. It was not white, it was not black, it was the Jews. Romans 1:16 For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ, for it is the power of God to salvation for

Yes, of the Gentiles also, Matt. 28:19 - Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,
Who The Gift Of Salvation Was Promised to: BUT SOME MEN CORRUPT THE WORD -Mormons say that black skin is a sign of evil and sin. - KKK says White Christians are supreme -Anti White Movements say that whites are going to hell.
WHOS RIGHT? NO ONE!!! Who The Gift Of Salvation Was Promised to: Titus 2:11 - For the grace of God that brings salvation has appeared to all men.

BEAUTY OF UNITY ONE LOVE 1 John 3:14-15 We know that we have passed from death to life, because we love the brethren. He who does not love his brother[a] abides in death. Whoever hates his brother is a murderer, and you know that no murderer has eternal life abiding in him. 1 John 3:16 By this we know love, because He laid
down His life for us. And we also ought to lay down our lives for the brethren. BEAUTY OF UNITY No Barriers in The Lord Acts 13:47 For so the Lord has commanded us: I have set you as a light to the Gentiles, That you should be for
salvation to the ends of the earth. Exodus 4:11 - So the LORD said to him, Who has made mans mouth? Or who makes the mute, the deaf, the seeing, or the blind? Have not I, the LORD? Are we at Northside united?
