VERSTER, Pieter. Church and community: New hope for Africa. Missionalia (Online) [online]. 2022, vol.50, n.spe, pp.59-73. ISSN 2312-878X.

To be concerned about the present situation in Africa and South Africa, in particular, is an understatement. What can the church do to help establish an ethical, value-based social contract? First, one must understand what the essence of the church is. Secondly, one must understand that the church as the body of Christ must be broken in the world in order to establish new relations with all people. Thirdly, calling people to new life in Christ is necessary, and the church should be the servant church. Fourthly, prophetically, the church shows the way to new life and explicitly rejects all corruption so that the community can alleviate poverty and want.

Palavras-chave : Africa; Church; Community; Corruption; Poverty; Brokenness; New Life; Servant; Future.
