Coherent Life and Mission

It is not credible to proclaim that God’s reign is near if God in Christ is worshiped but God’s liberating power is absent in the life and work of the communities.

Imagination Needed

Mission is a biblical universal, the modern missionary movement was a specific, culturally conditioned initiative which, while amazingly successful in its time, is likely to become increasingly dysfunctional if the attempt is made to preserve it as it is.

Language and Mission

When Paul announced the message about Jesus Christ in Greece and Rome, he had to use all sorts of terms that had a completely different sound to his hearers than what he intended.

Mission: Balancing the Bible

A biblical approach to mission avoids both simply trying to apply Paul’s methods in an ahistorical fashion and also adopting the latest insights from anthropology and sociology without any biblical reflection.
