Interpretation of the Great Commission in Latvia: An Analysis of Lutheran and Baptist Documents

  • Kristina Ece University of the Nations

Abstract

This paper explores how the understanding of the passage of Matthew 28:18-20 (Great Commission) has defined the understanding of mission work in Lutheran and Baptist churches in Latvia since the nation's independence in 1990. Like in other former Soviet bloc countries, the church in Latvia has been in a process of discovery of mission. Consideration of the Latvian story could give insight and keys for how missions could be developed in other countries that share a similar past.
