A church planted into a particular culture at a particular time can really only last for one generation. Gospel faithfulness and cultural relevance are issues that every church must grapple with, in every generation. This can only be done when we are clear about what the church is, biblically. We can only understand cultural relevance and gospel faithfulness when we have a clear grasp of a biblical ecclesiology.
