Abstract

Christian mission should be returned with a mindset and new perspective on interpreting the messages of the Bible. Christian mission should have a blue print on the context of human solidarity and intercultural communication. Engagement in other people's social live, dialogue with them. A social engagement will give birth to a new understanding of the old doctrine or will renew it. Understanding will lead people to a social gait that is also renewed. In applying God's mission in the midst of a pluralist-religious society such as Indonesia, the theory and doctrine that must be used is what and how to do it as a responsibility as a believer in this world in his duties and vocation to make this world a comfortable place for living today for all creatures created by God. Christianity must carry out God's mission by upholding compassion, and making its main goal is to humanize human beings with dignity and try to develop a contextual mission theology in Indonesia.
