Missional Field Notes

Quotes, Examples, and Ideas from My Missional Frontier

Mission is rooted in the identity of God Himself. God is on a mission, Jesus is the embodiment of that mission and empowers the people of God for God’s mission. Jesus identifies himself as being sent more than forty times in the Gospel of John. The church is sent on mission by Jesus. Being missional, therefore, is the church’s realization that it is called to join Jesus in God’s mission in the power of the Spirit. A missional church is one that seeks to engage all of the church in the activity God has for them—His mission.
