Title: Recovering Christological Ecclesiology
Developed under the guidance of Dr. Cameron Jorgenson , School of Divinity
While the Trinity’s perichoretic and processional relationships cast a theological vision of the Church as a Trinitarian community, they fail to account for the concrete and embodied essence of its nature and mission as the Body of Christ. As a corrective, Christology must replace the Trinity as the foundation for ecclesiology. This is because the Church finds its ontological essence in Christology. Furthermore, through the sacraments of baptism and Eucharist, embodied Christology gives the Church its missiological identity as the Incarnation of Christ. Essentially, this paper attempts to redeem the Church and Trinity from the sociological projections of contemporary theologians.
