A Quote about Church
Have been doing some thinking and reading lately about the idea of being a missional church. Maybe it’s not something that we can become gradually, but there has to be a near-complete break from what we’re doing now. Something like a conversion from consumer church (a place where certain things happen or certain goods and services are distributed) to missional church (a people who live out the reign of God in certain concrete ways).
Anyway, this is a quote from the book Missional Church that stuck out to me:
“Ministries of leadership are given to enable the church to carry out its fundamentally missiological purpose in the world: to announce and demonstrate the new creation in Jesus Christ.”
