Global Connections I recently had the privilege to celebrate the Free Methodist Church of India becoming a general conference. In India, I learned a church is a church. A pastor is a pastor. The main difference is our address. Our mission is still the same. As I got to know FM Pastor Shirish Ahaley in Mumbai, […]

God desires the redemption of the world and actively works to bring about His ends. That’s the overarching story of the Bible. Some call this the mission of God. Followers of Jesus participate in the mission of God. For easy reference, let’s use “missional living” to describe the efforts of Jesus’ followers to participate in […]
