The search for Biblical principles of church and ministry proves to be elusive. By correlating the socio-historic situation during the pre-modern, modern and post-modern eras with various models of ecclesiastical organisation, all attempting to be scripture based, it becomes obvious that factors of context co-determines organisational behaviour.
