Doctor of Theology (ThD)
There is considerable unity in the principle with respect to the essential nature of the church, a unity which the theological leaders see as grounded in evangelical theology. However, even with the evangelical principle, perhaps because of it, some differences appear with respect to the church. The main purpose of the writer of this paper is to investigate the roots of those differences. One major problem discovered is a too great reliance on the distinction between the visible church and the invisible church.
