Mexico-City

In 1963, the first CWME met in Mexico-City under the theme of "mission in six continents". The perspective of mission was enlarged to encompass all continents, and not only those of the "south". Meeting during the first development decade, the conference dealt intensively with witness in a world where God was active, inviting the churches to join in missio Dei. It was the time of a psoitive appreciation of secularization and of non-religious formulations of Christian faith and action, in particular in the West.
