That mission is three-fold in nature and can be properly stated under the categories of Evangelism, Edification and Benevolence.

 

1. Evangelism

The church is to preach the soul-saving message of the gospel to all nations (Matthew 28:18-19), to every creature  (Mark 16:15).  It is hard to imagine a weightier responsibility than that one.  However, since God has placed this priceless treasure (Matthew 13:44-46) in the hands of the church, let us pray our hands are worthy of the task (I Corinthians 4:1-2).

 

2. Edification
 

There is no fellowship on earth richer than that of faithful Christians (Ephesians 4:15-16).  They have the love of God for a bond, the camaraderie of fighting the same enemy, the same longing for heaven.  May we always strive to provoke one another unto love and good works (Hebrews 10:24).

 

3. Benevolence
 

Christians have been given an unspeakable gift (II Corinthians 9:15).  It is only natural that they themselves would be givers (Acts 20:35).  "As we have therefore opportunity, let us do good unto all men, especially unto them who are of the household of faith" (Galatians 6:10).
