Abstract

With the end of the western colonial rule, and the vitality of the ministerial and mission outreach of Christian communities in the non-western world, Christian communities world over have come to a new situation of being a world church. No region of the world has any more a monopoly on Christianity. The world church reality calls for appropriate recasting of traditional ecclesiologies and critically engaging with the emerging ecclesiologies to facilitate healthy communion among churches around the globe. To achieve this, western European Christianity has to move beyond Christendom and Asian Christianity beyond the mentality of missiondom. Failing to move in that direction will only contribute to further instability among historic western churches and rigidity in their parochial understanding of the nature of the church.
