Mission of the UMC (80271-FO-¶120)

Amend ¶120  to read:   The Mission – The mission of the Church is to make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world...
  
We would further recommend that the editorial staff charged with the preparation of The Book of Discipline work toward consistency according to the above mentioned recommendations wherever the mission of the Church is referred to.  
 

Rationale

While the missional thrust of the Church appears in ¶¶ 120-121, the proposed mission statement combines making disciples with going forth into the world for its transformation with God and others.
