Abstract and Keywords

Chapter 9 focuses on how Christian missionary movements from Asia have been received by global churches. Although the focus here is the Asian continent, later sections will involve discussions of Africa and Latin America. A truly diverse continent, Asia has been considered the origin of “world religions,” Christianity included. This diversity has also brought about challenges for Christianity in particular, which this chapter hopes to address. It is proposed here that global mission should be understood in the light of interdependent relationships of mutual partners, that there should be a common mission in lieu of a reverse mission, and that those who are engaged in missionary movements should exhibit cultural sensitivity, humility, and a willingness to work in unison with each other.

Keywords: global churches, Asian continent, Africa, Latin America, world religions, global mission
