Towards a Renewalist Missiology

image of Mission Studies

Studies of mission have started using the category of “renewalist” particularly in regard to the statistics of Christian growth across the world. This embraces those with links to classical Pentecostal, charismatic and evangelical approaches to faith. It is a helpful way of seeing the growth of pentecostal-like movements over the last century. However, little has been done to clarify renewalist identity and what might constitute a renewalist approach to mission. This article seeks to review the development of this identity against the wider background of missiology to then clarify key aspects of renewalist identity. It then suggests elements of a renewalist approach to mission with reference to both practice and theology. These highlight the work of the Holy Spirit, the importance of the gospel and community, the desire for wider integration and the emphasis on transformation. In providing more depth to existing terminology this article seeks to contribute to wider mission studies.特别在使用世界上基督徒快速成长的数据时,宣教研究开始使用‘更新者’这样的类别。这包括了那些信奉传统的五旬宗,灵恩派及福音派的信徒。这样的使用很帮助我们了解过去一个世纪来五旬宗式运动的成长。但是,更新者的身份及他们宣教的方式却很少被阐明过。本文寻求在广泛的宣教背景下查考这身份的发展及其主要方面,然后提出更新者在实践和神学上宣教的模式。借此显明的乃是圣灵的工作、福音及群体的重要、人们对整合的渴求以及对转化的重视。透过对现存的术语更深的解读,本文试图对宣教研究做出些许贡献。Los estudios de la misión han empezado a utilizar la categoría de “carismáticos o de renovación”, especialmente en relación a estadísticas sobre el crecimiento cristiano global. Abarca a aquellos que tienen vínculos con enfoques de fe de tipo pentecostal clásico, carismático y evangélico. Es una manera útil de observar el crecimiento de movimientos similares a los pentecostales durante el siglo pasado. Sin embargo, poco se ha hecho para esclarecer el significado de una identidad carismática o de renovación y lo que podría conformar un enfoque carismático o de renovación de la misión. Este artículo busca revisar el desarrollo de esta identidad en el contexto más amplio de la misionología para luego aclarar aspectos clave de la identidad carismática o de renovación. A continuación, sugiere elementos de un enfoque carismático o de renovación de la misión con referencia tanto a la práctica como a la teología. Estos destacan la obra del Espíritu Santo, la importancia del evangelio y la comunidad, el deseo de una mayor integración y el énfasis sobre la transformación. Al trabajar con más profundidad la terminología existente, este artículo busca contribuir a un estudio más amplio de las misión.This article is in English.
