Missions isn’t something we do as a church, it is who we are called to be. God is a sending God, a missionary God, who has called His people, the church, to be missionary agents of His love and glory. The concept missional epitomizes this idea. This manifesto seeks to serve the church by clarifying its calling and helping it theologically understand and practically live out God’s mission in the world today. Although it is frequently stated “God’s church has a mission,” according to missional theology, a more accurate expression is “God’s mission has a church” (Ephesians 3:7-13). For a better understanding, we recommend reading a Missional Manifesto.
Practically speaking, here is how we flesh out this reality.
