Christ’s strategy is to scatter His people throughout the world between Sundays, penetrating society’s structure from within. They are the true ministers of Jesus Christ in the world. Rightly understood, every believer is in full-time service for Jesus Christ. That movement is a lay movement, and the church’s impact is the aggregate of all the laity’s impact as they carry out their common tasks between Sundays.
