1. God is a missionary God who sends the church into the world.

It is God’s mission that has a church rather

than a church that has a mission.

Mission is understood as being derived from the very nature of God. The classical doctrine of the mission Dei (the mission of God) as God the Father sending the Son, and God the Father and the Son sending the Spirit is expanded to include yet another “movement”: Father, Son, and Spirit sending the church into the world. (Transforming Mission by David Bosch.)

2 god s mission in the world is related to the reign kingdom of god
2. God’s mission in the world is related to the reign (kingdom) of God.

The message of Jesus is centered on the

reign of God, which must be understood

as both already & not yet.

The Kingdom of God

Jesus came “preaching/announcing the good news of the kingdom of God.”

“That is my mission”

(Luke 4:43 – Phillips)

“But we have instead been preaching ‘the plan of salvation.’”

Contextualization is a key.

“Missio Dei” The Mission of God

Mission is understood as being derived from the very nature of God. The classical doctrine of the Missio Dei as God the Father sending the Son, and God the Father and the Son sending the Spirit is expanded to include yet another “movement”: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit sending the church into the world.

From the book Transforming Mission

By David Bosch

what is god s mission
What is God’s Mission?

Mission is the result of God’s initiative, rooted in God’s purposes to restore and heal creation.

“God’s mission is to set things right in a broken, sinful world, to redeem it, and to restore it to what God has always intended for the world.”

From the book Treasures in Clay Jars
