Considering Adopting the Statement of Practice?

One of the reasons Biblical Missiology developed the Biblical Missiology Statement of Practice is because many churches, organizations, and missionaries asked us what does it mean to practice a biblical missiology. Many organizations and churches struggle themselves to create their own statement of practices. Added to this, donors would come to us asking us about organizations that we believed followed a biblical missiology to whom they could safely donate their money to. We realized that what was needed was one document that could be shared between organizations, churches, missionaries, and donors alike to attest to, that if truly followed, would help to ensure not only biblical beliefs, but also biblical practices.

Therefore, Biblical Missiology encourages every organization, church, missionary, and even donors to evaluate the Biblical Missiology Statement of Practice for themselves. If they can agree to it, and abide by it, we encourage them to join Biblical Missiology in promoting the Biblical Missiology  Statement of Practice to others, showing that they not only believe in biblical things, but carry those beliefs into practice.

What do we mean by abide-by? We do not expect everyone to officially adopt the Biblical Missiology Statement of Practice in word. But, by using it as a guideline, you can find out if you are in alignment with it. Simply adopting it and pointing to it, as a common document between many organizations, makes it easier for others to know you are in alignment with it. It is up to you how you do it.

But if you do publicly adopt and abide by the Biblical Missiology Standard of Practice, you will get one of the following seals to put on your website and materials to show that you care about biblical standards of practice.
