What is Mission?

Living and preaching the good news of Jesus Christ.

As Christians follow Christ in the power of the Spirit, sharing and demonstrating the good news of his Kingdom, people can be transformed into who they were originally meant to be and creation can be healed.

The Diocese of Salisbury seeks to encompass all aspects of mission in a way which best reflects the Glory of God, especially those identified in the Five Marks of Mission.
