“We are a missional church.”
I’ve heard many people say that over the past few years.
After a while, it starts to get annoying.
Why?
Because it’s redundant.
Saying that our church is a missional church is similar to saying that I attend the Redundancy School of Redundancy.

A church should be missional to begin with.
What we’re actually saying is that “We are a church church.”

It’s kind of troubling that we have to add “missional” to separate ourselves from other churches.

I look forward to the day when we can say “church” and that being missional is implied. The way it should be.
