Abstract
Can a healthy 200 year old congregation continue in successive steps of church revitalization? A history of Lancaster Presbyterian Church is recorded and health indicators affirmed while the need for ongoing revitalization is embraced. The question is examined with respect to biblical, historical and theological implications of union with Christ. This doctrine is placed at the heart of revitalization and considered in response to manifestations of sin in postmodernism, narcissism, materialism and consumerism. The gospel is affirmed as a biblical solution to sin, and the outworking of the gospel in kingdom service is framed in terms of self-denial and cross-bearing.
