The EM [emerging movement] is a post-evangelical group of young Christians who are doing what they can to get the church back in line with the kingdom vision of Jesus.

The reason I make this suggestion is that I cannot think of any denomination in the world more in tune with the heart of the EM: a missional gospel that seeks to live out the gospel in such a way that evangelism is what the church “is” as much as what the church “says.”
