No One Process Church

Question: 
Is there a distinctive process ecclesiology?

No. There is no one process ecclesiology. The kind of “church” appropriate for Quakers is quite different from that appropriate for Lutherans or Catholics. These also differ. In other words, process thought does not say that one form of Christianity is the right one for all believers at all times. On the other hand, accepting a process perspective affects the way Quakers, Lutherans, and Catholics think of their church and shape it.
