Daniel Vestal on Being Missional & Being Baptist

Recently Daniel Vestal, executive coordinator of the Cooperative Baptist Fellowship, visited Calvary Baptist Church here in Waco and preached on "Being Missional and Being Baptist."

The CBF has posted a similar sermon by Vestal on the same subject here.

His conclusion:
Can you imagine the transformation that would take place in the world if Baptist churches discerned God’s mission in the world and discovered their participation in it? It would be revolutionary. Can you also imagine the energy that would take place in Baptist churches if they discovered and interpreted the Baptist vision for the 21st century in missional terms? It would be revolutionary. In Cooperative Baptist Fellowship we are working and praying for such transformation and energy.

A lot seems to hang on how one defines "God's mission in the world." Did Vestal define his understanding in this sermon or has he somewhere else?

Yes it would certainly be revolutionary!
