“The church cannot understand itself alone. It can only truly comprehend its mission and its meaning, its roles and its function in relation to others”
Jurgen Moltmann
“The Church is the Church only when it exists for others.”
Dietrich Bonhoeffer
“What the church does internally with no intention of impacting the world outside itself is not mission. But when a local congregation understands that it is, by its nature, a constellation of mission activites, and it intentionally lives its life as a missionary body, then it begins to emerge toward becoming the authentic Church of Jesus Christ.”
Charles Van Engen
