From a spiritual perspective, however, (Wilbur) Ellsworth was suffering.
First Baptist of Wheaton was not immune to this trend: Ellsworth increasingly found himself fighting with congregants about the way worship was being done."They wanted to replace our organ with a drum set and do similar things that boiled down not to doctrine, but to personal preference," he explains."I said, That's not going to happen as long as I'm here.'" It didn't.In 2000, after 13 years as the pastor of First Baptist, Ellsworth was forced out.
For Ellsworth, his departure from First Baptist triggered both a professional and a spiritual crisis.But, before he could deal with the former, he felt he had to address the latter.He devoted himself to reading theology and church history.At first, he seemed headed in the direction of the Calvinist-influenced Reformed Baptist Church or the Anglican Church, which are where evangelicals in search of a more classical Christian style of worship often end up.But, as Ellsworth continued in his own personal search, his readings and discussions began taking him further and further past the Reformation and ever deeper into church history.And, gradually, much to his surprise, he found himself growing increasingly interested in a church he once knew virtually nothing about: the Orthodox Church."I really thought he'd go to Canterbury," says Alan Jacobs, a Wheaton College English professor and Anglican who is friendly with Ellsworth.
