What does it mean for a church to be “authentic?”
This word has been thrown around a lot lately, becoming almost as irrelevant as “relevant.” But amazingly, no matter
who whom (h/t: Sam’s Dad) you ask, this adjective will likely be used to describe what is desired from a prospective church.
But what does it mean? What are the implications of an “authentic” church? If you were to walk through the doors a church building, how would you know whether or not you were entering a sanctuary of authenticity?
