Abstract
In our paper, we will focus on the relationship between worship, community and mission, who are fundamental dimensions for our Church in direct relation with the Revelation of the Father through His Son Jesus Christ – logou antropou – Word was made flesh. From the perspective of the evangelization of the culture, the transfer of the Scripture into vernacular languages is a part of the process of conversion but also a challenge for the actual languages who are more and more reduced to a materialistic view, yet secularized by different factors. One of our research question of this paper will ask the high culture but also the culture of the poor in search for a critical analysis of the post-modern culture. The process of enculturation should bring change and hope, a Christian perspective of life, justice, and above all the presence of God among us in local Churches.
Our paper will be developed on these documents: Mission of the Orthodox Church in Today’s World Document (MOCT); Apostolic Exhortation Evangelii Nuntiandi; the documents issued within the Lausanne movement.

Keywords
