The church on its way to the twenty-first century:  A critical reflection on being church in a changing context in South Africa. Reflection on the underlying reality of the church in South Africa on its way to the twenty-first century should take into account the  dynamic nature of a church. Being a church presupposes the church judging its situation before God. Transition to a new context accentuates the line between the world and the church, since Christianity has finally reached the stage where the world confronts each and every believer as he or she emerges from the doors of his or her church or home. To be a church in this changing context has profound implications for the life and commitment of both the church and the individual believer.
