How Does the Church Practice Its Mission?

What is the practice of Christian mission? In every service of Christian worship, God invites believers into his story in which he is forming them into the likeness of Christ. God gathers his people around the Word and Table and commissions them to bear his image in the world. In this video James K.A. Smith from Calvin College joins Tod Bolsinger to discuss the mission of God in the life of the church.

He oversees the Christian Education ministry at Resurrection PCA in San Diego and serves as a hospice chaplain. He has an affinity for all things J.R.R. Tolkien (except the movies) and has interests in the intersections of philosophy and theology. His biggest prayer is that the gospel in all its beauty might re-kindle a wonder and joy of God’s goodness in our hearts and that our lives might adorn the gospel. Connect with Timothy on Twitter @word_water_wine.‚Äč
