Transcript of The Church and the Internet
Internet is a new territory yet to be explored and so my conclusion
The Church Documents
and Social Media
Concept of the Church
The Bible is full of
stories of God’s people working in partnership
God is a network himself—the Trinity—pulsating with communion.
Working together is God’s idea.
He lives in community, in relationship, outside of time, in eternity.
Our individual potential is only realized, our wholeness only experienced, in relationship with others.
God created us to trust and to work in company of each other.
Believers throughout history have sought to respond to God’s call
to unity with Him and with each other.

Jesus would not have been born of a woman
Networks are everywhere

technology and social communication
as the means of Evangelization.

and instruction as well as
helps to spread and support of the Kingdom of God.
