The Mission of God is God’s purpose for the redeeming and restoring of the world that God’s people are called to participate in. In this course we shall explore several aspects of that mission as described in the Bible’s story, understood in relation to Christian faith and continued through history. We shall evaluate examples of how God’s mission has been and is being interpreted and carried out and consider our own participation in it.
The Mission of God course serves as a gateway into Carey’s Applied Theology programme. Various strands of learning in Bible, theology, spirituality, history, culture and society, and the practice of ministry and mission are introduced with a common orientation towards knowing and serving God within the community of God’s people as participants in God’s mission.
