What is the Missional Church?

  1. The basic premise of the missional church is that mission is the very essence of the church. This is a larger claim than saying that every individual member of the church is a missionary: it is a claim that the church itself is a sign, a foretaste, an instrument, and an agent of God’s kingdom reign on earth.
  2. The missional church attempts to construe the gospel and salvation more “holistically” or “comprehensively” than evangelicals have traditionally done, believing that the gospel is a proclamation “not merely” of individual salvation but also of reconciliation, justice, peace, healing, liberation, and love for the entire world.
