The Mission - The Gospel of Matthew, Part 107

What is a simple statement that anyone could remember which reminds us daily as to our mission as a church? This is important because if we can’t memorize the mission of the church and have it right at the tip of our tongues, right at the forefront of our hearts and minds then we will become confused. When we are confused then we send out to the world a confusing message. So what, simply put, is the mission of the church?

Matthew 28:16-20  
16 Then the eleven disciples went to Galilee, to the mountain where Jesus had told them to go.  17 When they saw him, they worshiped him; but some doubted.  18 Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me.  19 Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,  20 and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”
