The three broad commitments include Communion, Community and Commission.
Communion (in Relationship with Christ) - Inner Journey
- God's word
Community (in Relationship with One Another) - Together Journey
Commission (in Relationshi with the World) - Outer Journey
- Gospel telling/sharing
I think that as long as these three Cs / journeys are present, any group of Christians can legitimately be considered a church in any place. Well what do you all think?
Mike and Alan ask some interesting questions which are worth pondering:
To be a church,
Do you need to meet in a church building?
Do you need to meet weekly?
Do you need ministers?
Do you need to sing?
Does someone have to bring a sermon?
Hope to hear your answers to these questions.
