The Nature and Purpose of the Church

26May04

The Nature and Purpose of the Church:

A stage on the way to a common statement

Faith and Order Paper No. 181 – November 1998

a quote: “Mission belongs to the very being of the Church. As persons who acknowledge Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour, Christians are called to proclaim the Gospel in word and deed. They are to address those who have not heard as well as to those who are no longer in living contact with the Gospel, the Good News of the reign of God. They are called to live its values and to be a foretaste of that reign in the world.”
