Contextualisation in mission

"The recent popularity of talk of contextualisation in mission is fatally flawed if it fails to take account of the universal church" claimed Rev. Raja Singh at the opening session of the Faith2Share Leadership Consultation taking place in Bangalore this week.

Rev. Singh, the new General Secretary of the Indian Evangelical Mission, went on to say that although it is vital that the gospel is contextualised in every community this has also led to isolation and separation of Christian communities. The ministry of Faith2Share, he told participants, reminds us that every local (contextualised) community of Christians is a part of the universal Body of Christ and each needs the other.

Gathered in Bangalore this week are more than 50 leaders of mission agencies from around the world for a week focused on transforming communities through discipleship.
