Westernisation and Constantinianism have led to a reduction of the gospel and to a crisis of vocation for the church. God's mission for a broken world constitutes the church's primary vocation. This article proposes a functional missional ecclesiological methodology for the Partnership for Missional Church (PMC). PMC engages local churches on a shared journey of spiritual discernment. Its main objective is cultural and missional transformation at local church level. Mission is transformed by engaging congregations primarily as cultural systems, instead of as organisations. PMC is designed to guide congregations to witness to the reign of God.
