Abstract

This article begins with the personal faith journey of the author nurtured in Korean Pentecostalism. Christ is the best thing that can happen in life. The author's faith journey becomes a missionary journey. It leads to the discovery that there are two types of mission: centred on 'life after death' (soul saving) and mission as struggle for 'life before death' (a just world). The next step is to realise that the two have to go together.The 20th-century mission has been marked by the World Missionary Conference of Edinburgh 1910 and the Pentecostal movement. The former has led to the ecumenical movement, which has truncated mission into the discussion on church unity. The missionary fervour of the Pentecostal movement has resulted in unprecedented expansion of Christianity in the global South but completely ignored Christian unity. Today we see signs of the two beginning to converge.
