Mission (Christianity)

Christian mission is "an organized effort for the propagation of the Christian faith." Mission often involve sending individuals and groups, called "missionaries," to foreign countries and to places in their homeland for the purpose of proselytism. This involves evangelism, and humanitarian work, especially among the poor and disadvantaged. There are a few different kinds of mission trips: short-term, long-term, relational and ones meant simply for helping people in need. Some might choose to dedicate their whole lives to missions as well. Missionaries have the authority to preach the Christian faith, and provide humanitarian work to improve economic development, literacy, education, health care, and orphanages. Christian doctrines permit the provision of aid without requiring religious conversion.
