VAN HELDEN, Sophia (Phia). Emerging thinking in the RCSA churchgrowth ministry. In Skriflig (Online) [online]. 2015, vol.49, n.1, pp. 1-12. ISSN 1018-6441. http://dx.doi.org/10.4102/IDS.V49I1.1978.
In 2012 the RCSA decided towards a wholehearted and total turnaround regarding God's commands. Reassessing of what God commands in his Word is part of the process of thought change taking place in the RCSA. There are many causes for the complex trend of declining numbers in reformed churches towards which man cannot do anything. The only action believers can undertake under the guidance of the Holy Spirit is to obediently adapt their own thinking completely according to the Word by profound repentance. Because of far-reaching change occurring over time, it is necessary to follow the process diachronically as well as by means of different methodologies. This article seeks to contribute toward this process.
