The Spirit of the Lord is on me, because he has anointed me to preach good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners and recovery of sight for the blind, to release the oppressed, to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor. –Luke 4.18-19
Missio Dei. It is a Latin term translated “Mission of God.”
That is what we want to be about. We believe that God has a redemptive mission to all people on the Earth and it is our deepest longing to join with Him on that mission. What is God’s mission? We believe it is well stated by Jesus’ words in Matthew written above.
We chose to define our movement by the title Missio Dei, above all else, because it defines who we are and what we are created to be.
That’s who we are in a nutshell.
To delve a little deeper, come check out the vision of our community.
“The early church was a missional movement to its core. It understood that personal conversion implied the embracing of MISSIO DEI – the redemptive mission of God to the whole world through the work of his Messiah.”
