Urban areas are fundamentally different than suburban and rural areas, but most churches are indigenous to non-urban areas. The gospel will reach urban areas only by churches that are contextualized for an urban environment and through citywide gospel movements.
The church is not adequately prepared for the mass migrations to the cities that we are seeing today. The problems in urban areas cannot be solved by government but are an opportunity for the church to show that we are one in Christ.
Ninety percent of the Church is urban poor, but the Church is ill-equipped to truly hear their needs. The problem is not poverty but greed. The solution is not legislation but requires spiritual input.
