The Mission of God
God’s mission is to display His glory.
In the beginning, God created the universe as a way to demonstrate his power and creativity. Then he created mankind in His image, multiplying pictures of Himself. He created us to worship Him (because He deserves it), but we chose instead to worship lesser, created things. This, essentially, distorted God’s image in us.
The mission of God is to redeem creation back to Himself, starting with His image-bearers. This brings Him glory.
As people are made right with God, they become reflections of Him. God sends His people to spread the good news about Jesus–the message whereby more people are restored.
