Understanding the Gospel in Your Own Culture

We see in Scripture that Jesus was deeply personal in his ministry. He was purposeful in how he spent his time ministering to communities and engaging with others. His speech was filled with intention and his actions demonstrated value for those in his presence. This is the type of ministry we’re after. This is why…

We’re taking a moment to reflect on the work of the Lord. As we look at this past year, we are reminded both of the origin of Mission ONE and the formation of each of our long-established relationships with our partners around the world. Here are a few of our reflections and what we’re celebrating:…

We believe it’s through the expression of the local church that communities are sustained and transformed to look more like the Kingdom of God. In July, we visited our ministry partners throughout Africa. While we were there, Olivia, Mission ONE President, recorded this special video message for you showcasing how the local church is sharing…

At the end of June, we had the opportunity to participate in a pastors’ conference hosted by our local partner in Togo.

Holy Week is a celebratory time that brings much joy and planning. It’s preceded by a season of Lent—a 40-day period of fasting and repentance, which is followed by a 50-day Easter season that stretches from Easter to Pentecost. Holy Week is celebrated all around the world in the month of April. It begins on…

*The names in this blog post have been changed to protect the identity of our partners.  In our last blog post, we addressed the importance of philosophy in Christianity and how some beliefs, like those of the Greek Philosophers Plato and Aristotle, have affected the theology and teachings of many Christians across the world over…

The church today looks a lot different than it did even over the last 50 years or so. Like anything else, as time passes, things shift and change.
