The term multicultural is usually used as an adjective to describe the diverse cultural backgrounds of students and their families and school personnel, with an emphasis on their ethnicity, race, religion, gender, socio-economic status, and family structures. The term takes on importance in the development of teachers who recognize the importance of these factors in the education process.
A congregation that believes it is called by God to become a multicultural worshipping community in which no one ethnic or cultural or nationality group constitutes more than one-third of the constitutency and that is self-governing, self-expressing, self-financing, and a self-propagating congregation.
Multiculturalism as an ideology insists that all cultures are equal and thus must be accepted and assimilated. This is certainly antibiblical. Each culture must be evaluated for its own merits or demerits. The church certainly accepts people from all cultures, but not necessarily the cultures themselves. New believers should come out of their sinful cultures and adopt a distinctly Christian culture.
