Church, The 

The Episcopal theologian William Porcher DuBose noted that Christ in the NT frequently means humanity in Christ or humanity in the church, as Adam in the NT frequently means humanity or the human race. Christ is the head of the church, and we are to share Christ's salvation in and through the church. We are to be one in Christ and one with each other in Christ through the church. The mission of the church is to restore all people to unity with God and each other. The church pursues its mission through prayer and worship, proclaiming the gospel, and promoting justice, peace, and love. The church completes its mission through the ministry of all its members (BCP, p. 855).
