Summary/Abstract: Mission and Pastorate in łara Lăpusului. For a correct diagnosis of contemporary problems, of the degree and the way the preached evangelic message is received we need to make research studies, starting with the audience, the public. Thus, the results obtained will show us what the degree of receptivity of the evangelical message is, its accuracy and the believers’ reaction to certain challenges and their own way to see/perceive things. In this respect, in order to see what the attitude of our Church goers is in proportion to the suggested themes, we have set our goal to make a practical research study on the basis of which we could make suggestions to improve the missionary and pastoral strategies, while corroborating the theoretical elements of ecclesiology and those linked to the challenges of the contemporary society. The evangelic message cannot be submitted to improvement or amelioration because it is the peak of divine revelation; Jesus Christ the crucified and resurrected is but the same as two thousand years ago, “He is the same today as yesterday and forever”. Improvement and perfecting refer to the way the message is transmitted, to the oratorical, material, technical and spiritual methods which are always improvable. These will never be something entirely new, but they will be a harmonious development of the ones known so far.
