The Primary Mission of the Church

Engaging or Transforming the World?

Bryan D. Estelle

Today we hear that silence in the church on certain social issues is equivalent to complicity in social evils in culture. Estelle argues this claim is too binary. Rather, the corporate church of the Lord Jesus Christ is given a very specific job description. A third way may exist in which the corporate church pursues her God–given duties while individual Christians in their civic capacities and duties may address the social evils of the common kingdom. Not recognizing this specific God–given biblical, historical, and theological mission of the church may create confusing fuzzy boundaries in the minds of Christians.
