Dame Edith Sitwell

Missions is primarily intentional cross-cultural evangelism beyond the immediate outreach of the local church. Its aim is to bring the un-reached to saving faith in Jesus Christ, to disciple them and to incorporate them into the fellowship of an existing or newly-planted local assembly of believers. Adjunct ministries, to be considered missions should demonstrate their commitment to evangelism, discipleship and church planting/church growth.

Dr. Frank Allen

Exporting Church employees to Latin America masks a universal and unconscious fear of a new Church. North and South American authorities, differently motivated but equally fearful, become accomplices in maintaining a clerical and irrelevant Church.

Ivan Illich

When any government, or any church for that matter, undertakes to say to its subjects, This you may not read, this you must not see, this you are forbidden to know, the end result is tyranny and oppression no matter how holy the motives.

Robert A. Heinlein

Write on my gravestone: "Infidel, Traitor."--infidel to every church that compromises with wrong; traitor to every government that oppresses the people.

Wendell Phillips

Believing with you that religion is a matter which lies solely between man and his God, that he owes account to none other for his faith or his worship, that the legislative powers of government reach actions only, and not opinions, I contemplate with sovereign reverence that act of the whole American people which declared that their legislature should 'make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof,' thus building a wall of separation between Church and State
