Missions theology begins with God's stated plan for history--the mission of God1--and may be traced by following the major statements of divine intention using the diachronic methodology of biblical theology.2 In this article, the mission of God is viewed as the blessing of all peoples through Jesus Christ. God's method to accomplish this mission is by His outbreaking presence among a covenant people. Covenant people are referred to as a Kingdom under God with a mission to bless the nations. This mission of God stands as the foundation for a missions theology.
