This study attempts to establish if a Christian congregation, the Church of Christ in this place, has any responsibility towards the community in which it finds itself as that community tries to solve its various social problems. In doing this the study aims primarily at definitions of the Church and the community and the tasks, goals and motivation of both. On the basis of these definitions it strives to set forth certain principles that a local Church and its leaders might use as they seriously consider the various social problems in their community.
