"If God is sovereign, then his lordship must extend over all of life, and it cannot be restricted to the walls of the church or within the Christian orbit." Abraham Kuyper Common Grace 1.1.

What is ministry?

Ministry is equipping others to equip others, so that the Body of Christ can become what God intended it to be. Ministry is not restricted to those with turned-round collars! But those with the turned-round collars need to know how to equip their congregation for living Christianly in society. To do this they need to have a well developed Christian worldview, a clear grasp of theology and the Scriptures as well as an understanding of philosophy and ethics. So that they can provide the theological and biblical resources for their congregation both corporately and individually to transform the areas of society that they come into contact with.
