The Christian Movement (a.k.a. "the Church") is composed of everybody everywhere, past and present, who's heard the Great Announcement of Jesus and his Kingdom and given him their complete allegiance. As a result we are citizens of the Kingdom of God here and now and expected to act like it. Inviting the world in and living as the aliens that we are is how Christ's Kingdom spreads. This is a revolution; the High King of the universe fully intends to take over the world in this way.
