What is your model of the church?

Thanks to Karen Ward for this reminder exercise! She says, “i fit well with where i am, as an emergent type within the ‘deep structure sacramental’ lutheran and anglican tribes.” For me …I would say, ” I think I fit well too then in our little Malaysian (not so sacramental) Lutheran tribe, then I’ve always been an Anglican admirer as well as appreciative of Roman Catholic spirituality, I am still Charismatic & evangelical friendly (even though at points a little bit more “post” *grin*), and of course, being part of the more “fluid and yet intentional” emergent conversation has been stimulating and liberating …” Then again perhaps I’m more focused on a centred-set view of church than a bounded-set view. Well .. it’s Monday today … day to just relax-lah! Oh .. and start working on my Biblio for my masters program.

You scored as Sacrament model. Your model of the church is Sacrament. The church is the effective sign of the revelation that is the person of Jesus Christ. Christians are transformed by Christ and then become a beacon of Christ wherever they go. This model has a remarkable capacity for integrating other models of the church.
