Mission

The outworking of a life lived for God is sacrificial service for others and an impetus to share Jesus Christ's invitation to follow him. Taking part in activities inspired by these is known by Christians as mission. The mission is actually not ours but God's, his desire to reconcile human beings with himself and with one another.

In this section you can learn more about the ways that Anglicans and Episcopalians are involved with mission in a vast variety of ways: promoting reconciliation of all kinds, meeting people's basic needs, telling the story of the good news of Jesus Christ, and equipping his followers to do all these things.

Members of the Anglican Communion worldwide share five Marks of Mission which have been endorsed by Anglicans and Episcopalians around the globe.

If you have an exciting example of what you or your church is doing in any of these five areas or any of the areas reflected in this mission section, we'd love to hear from you.
