Mission is the extension of the love of the Trinitarian God, for the transformation of the whole world.

...The sowing of the Gospel speech in Metropolis Zambia and Malawi continues by the power of the Merciful God. But we just started…
The gospel message has the power to change lives, shine light into darkness, and deliver evil men from hell.

If you’d like to join us on a life-changing journey waiting to receive you with open arms and paternal love of His Beatitude Pope and Patriarch of Alexandria and All Africa Theodoros II and his Eminence Metropolitan of Zambia and Malawi Mr. Ioannis.
Follow Me, learn of Me, know and understand My mission and My message. Only then will you be able to be fishers of men. - Jesus’ message to Peter and Andrew –
In Gospel there is power in,no other message and no other “bait” can catch the fish of God.
As Christian humanists we have a duty to progress always further than the superficial, where human existences are formed into groups, so that we might discover the genuine human face, which is never predictable. In the discovery of the differences we need to rejoice in the surprise of the ability of finding a meeting point with another, who is different, on many levels, because in the spiritual world there is no monotony and boredom. And unity in Christ does not fear difference, but rather gives it meaning and enriches it. This inspiration is what contemporary man needs, and this is the best mission.
The church, "the one, holy, catholic and apostolic church," is obliged to witness to those near and afar, and to show interest in the whole human being, both on a personal and a social level, for the progress of the whole world. Nothing relating to human existence is out of the scope of interest for Orthodox mission.
