Shrinking Church in a Secular Society

The collapse of Christendom in the 20th Century means that the Church must prepare to be a persecuted minority in the 21st., living and working in a pagan mission field. Yet, she is still called to be an outgoing , rather than an ingrowing fellowship, serving and saving a lost society. Hope will be her motivation, not in renewal or revival, but in the return of the Lord Jesus Christ to reign.
