Jesus came with a commission that he gave to his church. It is in Matthew 28:18-20, called the Great Commission, and was to be obeyed by all churches and communities.
And Jesus came and said to them, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.”
For a church to effectively carry out the Great Commission, we must study God’s Word and pray for guidance from the Holy Spirit. In this way, we can discern how God wants us as a church to carry out the Great Commission. After that, it is important to communicate this clearly to the church. This is the purpose of our mission and values.
