God revealed His mission in His Word. This becomes apparent in the book of Genesis and is interwoven throughout the entire Bible through the book of Revelation. God created humankind for fellowship with Him. Once that possibility was destroyed by sin, God’s plan to redeem humanity and renew this possibility began.  This is where our concept of Christian missions begins and is centered.

Dr. Charles Gailey and Dr. Howard Culbertson presented a workshop entitled “What in the World is God Doing?” at the 2009 Nazarene Global Missions Conference where this was addressed in greater depth.
