Dr Goba concluded his paper by stating clearly that the Church is the new ""people of God"". This image of the Church is very important and must be taken into account in 'Black' ecclesiology if it is to qualify as and be regarded as ecclesiology. The implication of this is that the Church does not belong to any nation, race, tribe or society. It means rather that the Church, as the new people of God, is drawn from among the nations out of all those who have faith in Christ. However, Goba has pointed out a number of elements which influence Christian communities in their view of and ideas about the Church.
