E.K. Love – Mission of The Gospel Church
E. K. Love (Emmanuel K. Love) was a preacher at the famous First African Baptist Church of Savannah, Georgia. He was also a huge supporter of missions, a newspaper editor, a school starter, and deeply invested in politics.
This sermon was delivered as a dedication ceremony at another church in the late 1800s. At this point he was already a pastor but he was dedicating the site of a new church, and by doing so he gives us the goal of the Christian church.
Rev. Dr. Irwyn Ince serves as a pastor at Grace DC Presbyterian Church and Director of the newly formed Grace DC Institute for Cross-Cultural Mission. Dr. Ince is a graduate of City College of NY (B.E.E.E, 1995), Reformed Theological Seminary (M.A.R., 2006), and Covenant Theological Seminary (D.Min., 2016). He has contributed to the books Heal Us Emmanuel: A Call for Racial Reconciliation, Representation, and Unity in the Church, and All Are Welcome: Toward a Multi-Everything Church, and has a forthcoming book with InterVarsity Press entitled Beautiful Community: Cultivating the Life of Unity in Diversity as God’s Image. He and his wife, Kim, have been married 27 years, and have four children – Jelani, Nabil, Zakiya, and Jeremiah.
