oa Missionalia : Southern African Journal of Mission Studies - Apostolicity - future - Africa

Volume 2, Issue 3
  • ISSN : 0256-9507



The unusual sequence of the last two concepts in the title is deliberate. There is a direct connection between apostolicity and the future, and this link can only subsequently be applied to Africa. To put it differently: apostolicity does not, in the first place, have a peeculiar meaning for Africa which it does not have for other parts of the world, and only then by derivation also something to do with the future. The apostolicity of the church is its eschatological dimension: This needs closer examination before we consider what this eschatological dimension of the church means for the church in Africa.
