"Mission" has become, for North American Christians, an ambiguous and often uncomfortable term. To many it brings to mind a past in which western culture was identified with the gospel in missionary practice and programs. Distressed with this history and uncertain about how to overcome it, many prefer to ignore the New Testament mandate that the church must be on mission if it is to be the church. Others swing the other way, declaring that everything the church does is mission depriving the idea of mission of its power to define those specific actions of God which proclaim the gospel and build God's kingdom.
