Gospel-Centeredness and Missional Definitions with Tim Keller


Here are two great articles by Timothy Keller, Pastor of Redeemer Presbyterian Church:

THE MISSIONAL CHURCH

Keller gives five elements of the Missional Church: 1) they discourse in the vernacular; 2) they enter and re-tell the cultures stories with the gospel; 3) they theologically train lay people for public life and vocation; 4) they create Christian community which is counter-culture and counter-intuitive; 5) they practice Christian unity as much as possible on the local level.

THE CENTRALITY OF THE GOSPEL

This is one the best articles defining the Gospel for the modern (postmodern and post-postmodern) mind. Give it a read and reread!
