The Purpose of Missional Communities

The purpose of missional communities is to be a source of radical hope. to witness to the new identity and vision, the new way of life that has become a social reality in Jesus Christ through the power of the Holy Spirit. The persistent problem is not how to keep the church from withdrawing from the world, but how to keep the world from withdrawing from the church…The forming of Christian community is therefore not an option but the very lifestyle and vocation of the church.” -Brandon Hatmaker, Barefoot Church
