Rethinking: Kingdom Mission

The question is this: When you are kingdom mission church? What would you add? Or what do you think is the single most important sign of a kingdom mission church?

(An outline approach to rethinking kingdom mission, or You are a kingdom mission church when…)

  1. When the cruciform character of King Jesus shapes every major dimension of your local church.
  2. When your church perceives itself as a people redeemed and rescued from the world and evil by king Jesus.
  3. When your church knows it is governed by Lord Jesus.
  4. When your church challenges the lordless lords of our culture and country. (Barth’s expression)
  5. When your church seeks to be a kingdom kind of community.
  6. When your church is known above all for loving one another and loving your neighbors.
  7. When your church establishes justice and peace within the local fellowship and then extends that justice and peace into the community.
  8. When your church cannot avoid being people of “good works” in the public sector.
  9. When your church becomes “sacred space” or “kingdom space” in your community.
  10. When your church’s spiritual disciplines foster these themes.

 What spiritual practices or disciplines do we need to practice to foster this kind of kingdom mission church?
