What does “renewal” look like? Here are some characteristics:

Renewal in the City:

  • The helpless are protected, the lonely are brought into community, the prisoners are led out into prosperity (Ps 68:5-6)
  • The blind receive sight, the lame walk, the sick are healed, the deaf hear, the dead are raised, the poor have the good news preached to them (Matt 11:2-5)
  • People are being delivered from the domain of darkness (Col 1:13)
  • The gospel is preached to all and people are coming to a saving faith in Jesus (Mk 16:15; Matt 28:18-20)
  • Family Renewal:
    • Strong marriages are honored, yet the single life is not stigmatized.
    • Hurting marriages and families are being healed.
    • Strong schools are provided for all the children of the city.
    • Child abuse has radically declined.
    • Sex within marriage is viewed as beautiful; the sex industry is closing down.

    • Minority races and marginalized classes are demonstrating an attitude of forgiveness and patience.
    • Respect/justice and patience/mercy are actively being practiced in relations between races and classes.
    • The 20% “elites” are repenting of their detachment and getting involved with the needs of the community.
    • Hundreds of cooperative efforts between “haves” and communities of need are taking place to rebuild neighborhoods.
  • Church Renewal:
    • Clear and powerful proclamation of the Gospel of grace is spreading through the city replacing legalism, liberalism and authoritarian cults.
    • Testimonies of changed lives are the talk of the town.
    • Unity within and between churches replaces splintering and conflicts and causes unbelievers to marvel.
