Is the Christian Church in America losing its identity and influence? Or simple learning to better relate to the secular world around us?
Jesus commanded us to reach out into the sinful world and share the good news of the gospel of salvation. But He also warned us to not conform to the deception and lies of the world. Some believe the “identity crisis” within many professing Christians is a good thing–that it is causing the church to “re-think” its mission and purpose. Others view this confusion as a license to “secularize” the church and marginalize the eternal truth of God and His Word.
Pastor Chris Quintana joins us this morning to discuss the latest surveys and trends about the direction of the Christian Church in America. He is senior pastor at Calvary Chapel Cypress in California. You can listen to his live sermons each Sunday morning, Sunday evening and Wednesday evening as he teaches verse-by-verse through the Scriptures.

Stand Up For The Truth is a radio and online ministry that covers news of the day, trends in the church and theological issues that Christians deal with and talk about every day, and we give you a place to be educated, equipped and connected to help you discern along the way. But most importantly, we point you to Christ Jesus as our Savior, and His Word – the Scriptures, as the truth that you can depend on. In fact, you should filter everything you read, hear and consume as a believer – including what you find on this program – through the Scriptures to see if it lines up.
