Description

The majority-world church has grown exponentially in recent decades. It may appear that the minority world, or Western church, has no remaining responsibility to help the church in the Global South grow to maturity. But the job is still unfinished. According to the epistle to Titus, there was a need in Crete to finish the ordering of the church; St. Paul taught his disciples about the importance of deploying resources to set the firm foundation on which the universal church could grow and mature. Likewise, the children of God today are not distant from this same need. The Western church has been called to put order into the church of the rest of the world by partnering in the teaching and training of pastors, elders and other servants to oversee the return to the Christian confessional creeds. The Western church is established, experienced and equipped. Now is the time for her to fulfill her responsibility.

The Return to the Creeds: The Critical Need for the Minority World Confessional Church to Finish the Unfinished Orthodoxy and Orthopraxy in the Majority World Church
