The church of Jesus Christ is essentially a missionary organization. She is the product of missionary effort, her progress depends on evangelising endeavors. The very existence of the Church calls for mission, her self-preservation demands it. Missionary enterprise, however, is not the device of man, it is God's thought, plan, and work; it is as old as the eternal counsels of God regarding the salvation of mankind.
