RISK VERSUS FINAL GOAL IN MISSIONS
"Risk is not to be evaluated in terms of the probability of success but by the value of the goal" - Ralph Winter.
MISSIONARY PRINCIPLES (3)
OUR MISSIONARIES SHOULD NOT BE PASTORS OF NATIVE CHURCHES
We must not “localize” our work, but keep the vision of the “whole field”. The “whole world” must ever be kept in view. As soon as converts have been won and a church formed, elders should be appointed to act as overseers of the flock, and the missionary pass on, following the example of Paul, to unevangelized fields.
The Challenge of Missions, Oswald J. Smith, page 132
worship - the goal of missions
"Worship...is the fuel and goal of missions. It's the goal of missions because in missions we simply aim to bring the nations into the white-hot enjoyment of God's glory. The goal of missions is the gladness of the peoples in the greatness of God." See Psalm 67:3-4.
John Piper, Let the Nations be Glad - The Supremacy of God in Missions, Baker Academic, 2003, page 17.
