Classic Quote from Elton Trueblood

"All of the early Christians were missionaries. They did not leave the evangelistic task either to professional evangelists or to pastors to whom they paid salaries, for these did not exist... The early Church did not have a missionary arm; it was a missionary movement."
Elton Trueblood (1900-1994), The Incendiary Fellowship, New York: Harper, 1967, p. 11
