“the whole Bible is itself a missional phenomenon. The writings that now comprise our Bible are themselves the product of and witness to the ultimate mission of God. The Bible renders to us the story of God's mission through God's people in their engagement with God's world for the sake of the whole of God's creation. The Bible is the drama of this God of purpose engaged in the mission of achieving that purpose universally, embracing past, present and future, Israel and the nations, "life, the universe and everything," and with its centre, focus, climax, and completion in Jesus Christ. Mission is not just one of a list of things that the Bible happens to talk about, only a bit more urgently than some. Mission is, in that much-abused phrase, "what it's all about.”
Christopher J.H. Wright

“our mission is nothing less (or more) than participating with God in this grand story until he brings it to its guaranteed climax.”
Christopher J. H. Wright, The Mission of God's People: A Biblical Theology of the Church’s Mission

“It is not so much the case that God has a mission for his church in the world, as that God has a church for his mission in the world. Mission was not made for the church; the church was made for mission – God’s mission. Chris Wright”
Christopher J.H. Wright, The Mission of God's People: A Biblical Theology of the Church’s Mission
