The Church on Mission
A Biblical Vision for Transformation among All People
In this scripturally rich exploration, senior missiologist Craig Ott unpacks the mission statement of the church: to glorify God by multiplying transformational churches among all people. This concise yet robust biblical-theological treatment focuses on God’s glory, a strong ecclesiology, the importance of Scripture, and practical implications for congregational and mission practice.
Ideal for launching discussion and reflection, The Church on Mission helps readers refocus their vision and reignite their commitment to fulfilling God’s purposes for their church or mission. It will be of use in introductory classes on missiology, ecclesiology, and church planting and of interest to theologically minded pastors, missionaries, and laypeople.
