Because I needed to finish this story from here. On November 4, , Haggard posted a message on his Twitter account announcing his intent to begin public prayer meetings in his Colorado Springs home. James Church, with Haggard as pastor, was held at the Haggard home. James Church in Colorado Springs. Haggard has stated he believes in what is known as the Third Wave of the Holy Spirit and subscribes to the concept referred to as the fivefold ministry —beliefs often associated with the Charismatic Movement.
He has stated that he believes that there is one, all-knowing God, and that humans were created to be with him. Haggard developed a concept he called "The Life-Giving Church", which amounted to his ministry practice. He believed that churches and their members either lived "in the Tree of Life" or "in the Tree of Knowledge of good and evil", referring to the two trees in the Garden of Eden see Gen.
He wrote a book, The Life-Giving Church, to expound on this difference, and said that motivations are the key difference between two types of Christians.
For instance, Haggard proposed, two women can stand outside an abortion clinic with protest signs. The "tree of life" protestor is there because she loves the unborn and has compassion for the mother and father. The "tree of knowledge of good and evil" protestor has come because she believes abortion is evil and must be stopped.
If we handle others' mistakes with a life-giving attitude, then we and they have the opportunity to enjoy great power and freedom. But if we handle others' mistakes negatively, then we're eating from the wrong tree and will begin to die. In The Life-Giving Church , Haggard sets forth bylaws he initiated that are meant to help other churches with forming their own bylaws.
From the Statement of Faith, to the replacement of a new pastor, the entire set of bylaws is listed in the back of this book. A significant part of the bylaws is the universal pay scale Haggard instituted for all pastoral staff. Including himself, all pastors were paid on the same scale so that the longer one was employed, the better the pay became. There were also provisions for numbers of children in a family and years of pastoral experience. A significant part of Haggard's ministry at New Life Church was based around an entrepreneurial leadership model, which is also covered in The Life-Giving Church.
Haggard felt that young and upcoming leaders of the church would bog down in "cumbersome systems" in their churches and decide to take their talents elsewhere, resulting in the church losing its "brightest and best future leaders". In a visual representation, Haggard uses an upside down triangle to illustrate this concept. The leader is at the bottom and the people to be served are on top.
This "Philippians 2 Attitude" comes from the scripture that states, "Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit, but in humility consider others better than yourselves. Each of you should look not only to your interests, but also to the interests of others.
