Kirkens vesen og vekst : teologiske perspektiver på nyere kirkeveksttenkning


One's understanding of the nature of the church is decisive for one's understanding of her growth. The presence of Christ in gospel proclamation and administration of the sacraments is fundamental for New Testament ecclesiology. In her missionary journey over the centuries the church has, through allher contextual endeavours, remained surprisingly faithful tothis basis. On this background recent church growth theory is introduced and analysed with special regard to the understanding of worship and liturgy. Sympathetic to the missional intentions of church growth thinking a significant question is nevertheless asked: Does it allow the gospel its necessary critical role vis-a-vis (post-) modern middleclass culture? Or does it rather, inadvertantly perhaps, submit to cultural premises in a way that does not only dictate the forms of worship but influences its content as well?
