Darrel Guder on Missional Communities 2

“Regardless of the actual shape and name adopted, the local congregation is the basic unit of Christian witness if we understand witness incarnationally.  The gospel is always to be embodied by the people of God in a particular place.  The sent-out community is sent out into a specific context in which it is located.  There, it must grapple with the challenge to be faithful to its mandate while translating relevantly, which will mean that it struggles with the pressures to conform found in every cultural setting.”
