David Rogers at “Love Each Stone” has kicked off a great discussion with a post called “The City Church, a guest post by Paul Grabill“. As the title suggests, the post was actually written by Paul Grabill. Besides discussing the city church idea, they are also discussing APEPT (apostles, prophets, evagelists, pastors, and teachers from Eph. 4:11). I would recommend reading this post and participating in the ongoing discussion in the comments.
However, I also have a question. Is there a “city church” even if the “churches” of an area do not recognize it? Similarly, and perhaps more importantly, do the “one anothers” of Scripture apply only to those who are part of the same church (i.e. membership), or do they apply to any believer that we meet?
