Integral Mission Today

C René Padilla

The progress of evangelicals towards an integrated approach to mission can be observed in the consultation and conference statements surveyed in the previous paper. Needless to say, it takes far more than good statements to enable Christians to make a meaningful contribution to integral mission. The statements, however, are indicative of a new mentality searching for change. One of the most positive results of this period was the articulation of theological concepts rooted in Scripture that provide a firm basis for integral mission.
