Chapter Summary

This is the first chapter of the Lima ministry text and gives an ecclesiological foundation to the text. It presents the theological context within which the ordained ministry is discussed. After a note on the preceding history, the chapter moves to individual paragraphs. Then, the chapter talks about the responses to the reformed tradition. The calling of the whole people of God is seen as fitting in with the reformed tradition. Finally, the chapter discusses lessons and questions for the reformed tradition. A reformed theology of ministry can profit in two ways from the manner in which the ministry is introduced here. In the first place, through the missionary point of departure that starts from the missio Dei. The second point of departure is formed by the community of believers as the people of God.
