"In discussing Christian faith emerging from modernity to postmodernity, however, I rarely speak of Christianity, and I even resist talking about Christians as individuals; rather, I tend to speak of the church-- indeed, with a capital C. I want to advocate a shift from modern Christianity to a postmodern church... My point here is confessional: as attested in the Apostles' Creed. I believe in the holy catholic church, and I believe that the very notion of the holy catholic church undoes the modern individualism that plagues contemporary evangelicalism. Indeed, we would do well to recover a much maligned formula: "There is no salvation outside the church." This doesn't mean that a particular ecclesial body is the dispenser of grace or the arbiter of salvation; rather, there is simply no Christianity apart from the body of Christ, which is the church. The body is the New Testament's organic model of community that counters the modernist emphasis on the individual."

I do not seek to understand that I may believe, but I believe in order to understand. For this also I believe, –that unless I believed, I should not understand.-- St. Anselm of Canterbury (1033-1109)
