"Go therefore and make disciples of all nations"
What is the mission of the church? What is the purpose and mission of every follower of Jesus? To do the same thing He asked His followers to do in the 1st century. To “Go and make disciples of all nations ... Go into all the world and proclaim the gospel to the whole creation.” This is called the Great Commission. It is the Great Mission. Jesus is calling us to join a long line of followers and express His love and proclaim His Gospel to the world. The mission of the church is to take the Gospel across the street and around the world, and every Christian plays a role in that mission.
