WHAT IS THE CHURCH: Institution or movement
Churches are meant to be organised organisms. We must institutionalise the absolutes and core doctrines in order to protect them and pass them to the next generation. However the Church of Jesus Christ is always at its heart a people movement. Each local Church will express the gospel differently. This expression is life giving as it is led by the Holy Spirit, empowered by leadership and participated in by every Believer. It must be grassroots, organic and dynamic declaration of God’s truth within a particular time and a place.
