TRUE MARK OF THE CHURCH & MISSION

 

  Traditionally protestant churches accept four characters of the church. These are oneness, holiness, catholicity and apostolicity. Many theologists are convinced that these four characters are true mark of the church and these are to be maintained all the times. In the word of catholicity, it has a meaning that the gospel need to be reached to the whole mankind. The word of the Lord must be spreaded over the wall of cultures, ethnic groups and regions. In the meaning of church's apostolicity, church must confess faith by the Bible received from prophets and apostles and preserve it perfectly. Furthermore, church must proclaim the gospel to the end of the earth until the day of Jesus' second coming. Growth of churches based upon these characters are true growth. To become a true church, we should be mission-oriented.
