Some, misunderstanding God’s overall plan, also misunderstand what the Church is to do. What is the Church’s overall mission? Mark 16:15 tells us, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation”.
Matthew 28:19-20 Tells us, “Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations … teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age”. Jesus Christ gave His Church—this body of spiritually transformed believers—a responsibility to carry out. The Church’s mission is to preach the gospel of the Kingdom of God and make disciples throughout the world, teaching them exactly what Jesus taught. The work of the Church continues; it did not cease when the original disciples died. At first the job of the apostles, the Church’s mission has passed to each generation of God’s people. The gospel is God’s message of how salvation will be brought to mankind—starting with His Church. How are we to do this? Just what is Mt. Zion Church’s role? This week we look to God and ask, “What is our mission?”
