    The Theological account of Christian service to fellow humans had customarily been couched in the language of salvation presumed to be fully available only through Christian churches. This article argues how salvation is God's work and is available to all. The specific Christian vocation is to continue the mission of Jesus Christ which was bringing the divine reign. The article goes on to show that in the contemporary world this can be achieved only through the collaboration of the followers of all religions which in turn is built on Inter Religious Dialogue.
