Mission Assessment

1. Mission Assessment

Any application for support of mission involvement will be assessed against some specific principles, values and priorities:

  • Mission Principles – We believe mission should include the following: –
    1. To proclaim the Good News of the kingdom.
    2. To teach, baptise and nurture new believers
    3. To respond to human need by loving service.
    4. To seek to transform unjust structures of society.

To strive to safeguard the integrity of creation and sustain and renew the life of the earth.

These principles are based on the five marks of mission that were developed by the Anglican Consultative Council between 1984 and 1990 and stem from the understanding that God’s glory is to be declared to all nations.

  • Mission Values – We believe mission should be: –
    • Faithful to the clear teaching of scripture.
    • Done in the power of the Holy Spirit.
    • Done in partnership with the local church.
    • Culturally relevant and appropriate.
  • Mission Priorities – Finally, in assessing the allocation of resources to support mission we will consider the key priorities for Global Partner Support with these being:
    • To extend Jesus’ kingdom in the city of Birmingham.
    • To extend Jesus’ kingdom to where the church is not yet able to be self-propagating, in the UK and overseas.
    • To strengthen and equip the church for mission where it is weak.
