Below is my statement of what I see as the mission of God that the people of God are invited to join. Love to hear some of you thoughts! Theology of Mission Statement: Humanity is called to partner with the Creator as a subversive kingdom community, to bring shalom to the whole cosmos which is currently “subjected to frustration.”[1] Jesus’ resurrection inaugurated the “gathering up of all things”[2] through which a “new humanity”[3] is being formed to holistically transform the… Read more

The following is an excerpt from a paper I wrote during my undergrad program. It may challenge some presuppositions that you bring with your Christian background, or affirm some things you have wrestled with… Christianity’s common stereotype in the United States, as well as abroad, tends to look at hope through one lens.
