This article discusses mission as service to life. The author developing from the African worldview whose centrality is life, argues that the question of life permeates the history of salvation and is at the heart of the Christian mission as Jesus Christ the Perfect Revealer of God indicates ( John 10:10). The author concludes that life thus unites both the African worldview and the Christian mission; consequently mission becomes God's lifegiving activities directed to the world and the church's mandate of service to life under His guiding power. Such understanding gives new meaning to church activity in Africa and unites all her undertakings for this one purpose that all may come to get life to the full. It suggests that all that is anti-life is to be fought and rejected while all that is pro-life and leads all to acquire life in its fullness must be promoted and cultivated.
