The authors claim that now is the right time for the global evangelical movement to formulate a public code of ethics for Christian mission. Occasionally mission work has been marred by actions that do not demonstrate a proper level of respect for people. A code of ethics in mission would establish a standard of accountability and also become an evangelical contribution to the global effort to establish standards for the relations among religions which should help protect the freedom of religion. The complementary principles informing this code should be the need of all people for the gospel and the God-given dignity of all people created in his image.
