the case for church

Some ministry leaders and pastors say there is no need for contextualizing ministry and only the Gospel and its doctrines is essential. Some say that only multi-ethnic churches are needed, where everyone is equally incorporated in a church’s life and corporate culture.

But, when I read remarks like this, it helps me to see that a different flavor of church really is needed for next generation Asian Americans.

This remark is from Josh Deng, a college senior:

I was thinking about where I’d really find my place in the future, what kind of church I would be involved in. I decided that a purely chinese-speaking congregation was not my place. But on the flip side, a purely American (read: white) church would have me still feeling slightly out of place. Wonder where I fit in?
