Created for Missional Worship: Human Anthropology and the Great Commission

This paper engages in a discussion of human anthropology by considering the nature and purpose of human beings as God created them to live and lead within the created order. Its purpose is to explore the missional calling that God gives to his image-bearers to fill the earth with worship. Subsequently, it considers the ramifications of this created design and calling as they pertain to the discipline of Christian ethics. The paper begins with an exegetical exploration of the terms “image” and “likeness” in Genesis 1:27–28, develops the idea that humans are created not merely for worship and mission but as worshippers on mission, and concludes with a discussion of the implications of human anthropology and its relevance to the Great Commission (Matthew 28:18–20).
