The historical survey continues in America with attention to the formation of denominational structures and church practice. Four elements of ecclesiology are highlighted: community, individuality, particularity, and universality. The final chapter unites these themes as polarities that must be held together in order to present a Baptist conception of the church as the Body of Christ. The image is developed briefly for social application.
