Abstract

Contrary to widespread assumptions, neither Paul's pattern of church-planting nor his vision of those churches' mission was focused on efforts by those churches to draw and make more members for the church. Rather, Paul saw the church's life itself, both in relation to one another and in relation to their neighbors, as its calling and its mission. For Paul, the church's mission is to live out its identity in Christ as God's new creation in the face of empire. A careful look at Philippians in particular will make the contours of such a mission clear.
