Quotes on Missiology
bq. “All church planters [and all evangelists] operate within theological frameworks, but often these are assumed rather than articulated and adopted uncritically rather than as the result of reflection. Theological principles may influence strategy and practice less than unexamined tradition or innovative methodology . . . . An inadequate theological basis will not necessarily hinder short-term growth, or result in widespread heresy among newly planted churches. But it will limit the long-term impact of church planting, and may result in dangerous distortions in the way in which the mission of the church is understood. Church planting is not an end in itself, but one aspect of the mission of God which churches are privileged to participate” (Stuart Murray, Church Planting: Laying Foundations, 2001, 39).
