607 Contemporary Church Challenges3 Hours Against the tide of post-modernism the Church stands on the Rock of Truth. How can the Biblical Anabaptist bring God’s wisdom to bear on discussions of the Church’s mission, church membership, boundaries, “authentic” community, doctrine and creeds, technology, marriage, education, economic prosperity, and multiculturalism? This study calls young men and women to understand the times and to pursue actively a life of faithful discipleship.
