Missionarische Gemeinde

In dem Buch Transforming Mission von David J. Bosch habe ich gerade eine sehr gute Aussage zu missionarischer Gemeinde von Hans-Werner Gensichen gefunden:

»The missionary dimension of a local church’s life manifests itself, among other ways, when it is truly a worshipping community; it is able to welcome outsiders and make them feel at home; it is a church in which the pastor does not have the monopoly and the members are not merely objects of pastoral care; its members are equipped for their calling in society; it is structurally pliable and innovative; and it does not defend the privileges of a select group.«
