The Emerging church is a contemporary Christian movement (more specifically, a branch of Liberal Christianity) that seeks to reconcile the tensions between traditional Christian belief systems and postmodernism. The movement's adherents tend to think of Christianity in terms of a "conversation" in order to draw attention to the church's declared values of flexibility, decentralization, the desire to accommodate multiple understandings of Scripture, and its commitment to dialog. Followers tend to see themselves as people who are disillusioned with organized and institutional approaches to faith.
