Our Mission

 

Mass gathering, Brazil
  1. To go out to be followers of Christ in dialogue with people different from ourselves, proclaiming in our daily lives, in Word and Sacrament, that the Kingdom of God, present in all cultures, has been revealed in a unique way in the person of Jesus of Nazareth.
  2. To create deeply spiritual Christ-like communities everywhere, and offering our own spiritually rooted international fellowship, as a sign that the Kingdom is present and operative in our world today.
  3. To challenge society as a whole, through dialogue, to be transformed by the Holy Spirit along the path of the basic values of the Kingdom, justice and peace, forgiveness and reconciliation, global solidarity and respect for human rights.

We have heard the words of Christ to his disciples:

"Go therefore, make disciples of all nations, baptise them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teach them to observe all the commands I gave you". 
Together, as a Society, we are committed to acting on these words.

We believe that the Kingdom of God is the pearl of great value and that the Gospel is the power of God saving all who have faith. To receive this gift ourselves, we set out hearts on God's Kingdom and righteousness.

To share this gift with others, we have freely left our homes, our relatives and friends and become, like the apostles, witnesses to Christ proclaiming the Good News to peoples "far away". True to our missionary vocation, we are ready to leave our country and our own culture. We do so in order that the Gospel of Christ may bring together people of different races and may become incarnate in every culture and nation.
