Five Marks of Mission

Acknowledging that the mission of the Episcopal Church is the mission of Christ, the Five Marks of Mission are foundational for the many mission activities underway by congregations, dioceses and individuals.


The Five Marks of Mission, developed by the Anglican Consultative Council and adopted by the General Convention in 2009, are:

  • To proclaim the Good News of the Kingdom
  • To teach, baptize and nurture new believers
  • To respond to human need by loving service
  • To seek to transform unjust structures of society
  • To strive to safeguard the integrity of creation and sustain and renew the life of the earth


More ways to be part of the action

Be a part of the action:

  • “What's your mark? When you were marked as Christ's own forever at your baptism, did you ever wonder what mark he put on you?” Take this fun quiz to find out and learn more about the Five Marks of Mission on the Episcopal Church Facebook page:
  • Get your t-shirt at the Domestic and Foreign Missionary Society booth at General Convention and proudly wear your favorite Mark of Mission!
