what is church

After almost 3 years at Opawa Baptist I finally found some time to put up some posters. Here is my favourite, a mix of advertising poster and a quote that for me sums up a Biblical ecclesiology.


“The story of Acts is the story of a community inspired to make a continual series of creative experiments by the Pentecostal Spirit.” Quote by Fison in Fire Upon the Earth, 79.

Any chance of these being used as criteria for evaluation of emerging churches:
1. Where are the Biblical narratives shaping the journey of the church?
2. How much is the future the participatory work of a community?
3. Where are the signs of creative and innovative partnership with the Spirit?
