Erwin McManus states, "Once survival has become our supreme goal, we have lost our way... the church is not called to survive history but to serve humanity. As with each individual, there is a difference between living and existing for the church...The church exists to serve as the body of Christ, and it is through this commitment to serve that we are forced to engage our culture...The serving that we are called to requires direct contact. You cannot wash the feet of a dirty world if you refuse to touch it."
