Mission - The Basic Elements

If you're looking for an indepth, online analysis of Mission, then check out this amazing entry on a blog: http://jrwoodward.net/2008/11/a-primer-on-todays-missional-church/
I've linked it on the side toolbar called, 'A Primer on today's missional church'

A primer means, 'any book of elementary principles' (Dictionary.com)

In 1988, the Anglican Consultative Council produced these five marks of mission:

1. To proclaim the good news of the Kingdom
2. To teach, baptise and nurture new believers
3. To respond to human need by loving service
4. To seek to transform unjust structures of society
5. To strive to safeguard the integrity of creation and to sustain the life of the earth

They said mark number one is really a sum of what all mission is about. Check it out here

Lets proclaim that good news. Jesus is alive!!
