Christianity in general is more of a multicultural and global movement than ever before.
- need for Christians all over the world to work TOGETHER.
- John 17:18 (Jesus prayer)
- John 20:21 (commission) – As the father sent Jesus, so he sends US!
“How of Missions”
- it is the manner in which the Father sent the Son that determines the manner in which the church is sent by Jesus
- it’s mission is governed by the manner of His (mission). (Newbigin, Missons in Christ’s way)
- the importance of “as” in what Jesus said. (the father has sent me AS I send you)
- missions is NOT about colonization.
- missions must NOT be done alone!
- missions is not marketing (corporatization)
What is Jesus way for missions?
John 14:21 (Jesus prayer) – one as you and I are one.
- with God and with each other
