The church is on the verge of some tremendous changes. Contemporary church growth, despite its many blessings to believers, has failed to stem the decline of Christianity in the West. These times require a different kind of church - a church where every person is living a mission-sent life. The Bible uses the word apostles for Jesus' followers - that is, people sent on Jesus' behalf. In every existing form of the contemporary church - from the mega to the multi to the incarnational - some churches have taken the idea of apostolic mission seriously.
Discipleship is costly. Are we willing to critique and even challenge much we've been taught for the sake of the kingdom? For this is the radical nature of the discipleship to which Jesus calls us. He did not allow the outside culture to hold him captive; instead he established the kingdom of God and turned the world on its head. Jesus was untamed, and he calls his church to be the same.
