Love the definition of church here.

Paul B

like it!


Um, isn't that definition pretty much the exact opposite of "We believe in one, holy, catholic, and apostalic church"? One: singular not plural. Catholic: univerisal [what in the ancient world probably meant 'upper case c' in our sense]. Apostolic [prefix]. I'm totally for missional, fresh experssions, etc., but a definition of church that almost point-by-point contradicts the Nicene Creed? Well, I wonder if there might not be a better way to put it. I do think the other parts of the definition (not the space, aspirational, verb) work well, however.
