"A fundamental principle of the work of TEAC -- the Anglican Communion theological education working party -- is that concern for God's mission and good theological education belong together. Each needs the other." "As part of the TEAC's presentation to ACC 13 the group responsible decided to take as a framework the `marks of mission' of the Anglican Communion and see how the work that TEAC is doing links in to each of these marks." "However TEAC's exploration of mission and theological education at ACC 13 not only looked at these `five marks', but reflected on two others as well. We drew upon the report of MISSIO, the Anglican Communion's Mission Commission, which finished its work in 1999 and published its findings in a book entitled `Anglicans in Mission: A Transforming Journey'." TEAC goes on to examine the original five marks, add two others, and use these to examine how "good theological education helps to foster the mission of God which is the mission of Christ and his Church". The seven marks/factors are: 1. To proclaim the good news of the Kingdom; 2. To teach, baptise and nurture new believers; 3. To respond to human need by loving service; 4. To seek to transform unjust structures of society; 5. To strive to safeguard the integrity of creation and sustain and renew the life of the earth; 6. To worship and celebrate the grace of God; and 7. To live as one holy, catholic and apostolic church".
